I’m in the American Crafter Competition over at Naptime Crafters – – here’s my entry, fingers crossed!
When I heard the theme for this week, “Trash to Treasure” , I knew just the thing – -chairs I saved from the trash! My mom was cleaning out my grandpa’s yard and said these needed to go - the chairs were trash-bound, but I knew they had potential!! Several coats of rust-covering primer, white paint, and sealer, and they have a whole new life. The memory foam for the chairs was from an old mattress topper – I knew saving it would come in handy! The back is painted with a simple design that mimics the outdoor fabric I used when I sewed the cushions. LOVE Trash to Treasure – thanks for the great theme!
The rust was pretty prevailing, but the primer spray did a great job coating it.
Trevor’s awesome and used his engineering skills to do the back of the chair. Here you can see one of the chairs taped and ready for paint:
I thought they turned out great – – – hopefully others will think so too so I can move on a round in the competition….(feel free to head over and vote! update: voting starts at 4pm today)
