A while back when we were in Kansas City, we were driving around and I spotted this broken chair in a garbage can. I dug it out of the garbage, and brought it home to repurpose. In this post I’ll be sharing How to Repurpose a Broken Chair into a Photo Display.
I cut the legs off the chair using a miter saw and sanded it down.
I painted it with a lovely blue latex paint, and sanded it to distress it, then put a coat of wax on it.
I had just got done making the frames using the wire mesh, so photo display was still fresh on my mind, and I decided that’s what I would turn this chair back into, a photo display. I simply hot glued clothespins on the spindles, so they could hold photos.
What do you think of this photo display? I thought about staining the clothespins or painting them, what do you think, or do you think I should keep them as they are? Do you like to dig treasure out of the garbage?
