Turn an old chair into a beautiful new deck chair!

Leanne emailed me with her fantastic idea for turning an old chair into a new lawn or deck chair!  Here’s the chair before the redo:

The after is in the photo at the top.  Isn’t it amazing?  Here’s how she did it:

  • Stripped the chair down to the frame.
  • Placed wood pieces down for the seat and back portions
  • Primed the completed frame
  • Painted the chair in her choice of colour
  • Added a “treatment” (the scroll details you see on the back of the chair)
