I love old wooden folding chairs.
They always sell well in my shop, so I never
pass them up when I find them at a reasonable price.
Usually, I find just one or two at a time,
but a few weeks ago, I got 36 antique wooden
folding chairs at an auction - enough
for seating at a small reception!
from one business - which according to the back
of some of the chairs was a funeral home.
The tops all have the same style, but the legs have 3 different styles.
Some have a single wooden cross bar in the front;
some have double wooden cross bars,
and some have metal cross bars.
The seats came in 2 slightly different styles.
I decided I would play around and paint some,
so I painted this one white, distressed it, and added No. 1 to the front.
I thought they would make great chairs for a bride and groom,
so I also added the option to have, "Mrs." or "Mrs." put on the
front or back of the top, although I'd be willing to add
other words as well. It's available HERE.
I wiped off some of the paint on the seat,
allowing the grain of the faux leather to show.
You'll never guess what I did with another one.
Go ahead, take a guess!
You wouldn't have to be a great guesser,
to know I created a chalkboard on the
front and back of this one. It looks
similar in style to the chalkboard table
I made and sold - old schoolish.
it so it looks like a worn chalkboard surface,
although I doubt you'd want to write where you sit.
on pieces like this, because it adds to the overall
aged look, when you distress them and
purposely accent the imperfections.
This chair is available HERE.
The unpainted chairs at the top of the post
are available HERE. I have plenty of them too!
Well, here are all my past chairs!
