Come be my guest!
Last year my friend Renee gave me four of these chairs. Three had severe caning problems as well as joint issues.
So I decided to take two of them and make a chairbench to use as a luggage holder in one of the guest bedrooms.
I wish I could say it was as easy as it looks! Maybe if I had two more hands or a helper it would have gone smoother but I finally got the frame done.
This would make a great pallet wood project but I used the wood from the frame of a futon which Renee and I had found on one of our garage sale runs.
So I filled in all the recessed screw holes...
...and painted the whole thing Annie Sloan's Primer Red...
...just in time for weekend company!
