I must say, I felt a bit like Goldilocks when I sat upon one of my favorite chairs this week and broke it to bits. What’s a girl to do? DIY, repair, or despair?
“and she broke it to bits!”
I swear, all I did was sit on it. I have always loved the detailing of this cute chair that I found at a yard sale years ago and repainted. I just can’t toss it out, so I’m trying to figure out a way to upcycle it. I think this is a cute idea for a DIY chair shelf:
If Mr. Man hadn’t already custom made swings for our girls, I might consider something like this:
And perhaps if I had a green thumb (mine is BLACK – I am not even kidding), I would do something gorgeous like this chair upcycled into a planter.
I think I will likely do something more similar to this DIY chair shelf from Post Road Vintage, but I will probably remove the legs completely:
Of course, I suppose I could always replace the broken spindle and repair the whole thing. What do you think I should do?
