Find a Chair. Give it a new life!


We all have one. One that we just could not leave alone. It was sitting there, all by itself. You picked it up and said “I will give you a good home” and off it went, thrown in the back of your vehicle until it gets in the way of the next stray that you bring home. Then it goes into the garage and gets a few other projects piled upon it! Well, now is your time to pull it out and do something with it!

Announcing The Left Over Chair Project. This is a two month challenge. Here are the rules! Get a chair- or any other item that you have in your home. Due to the coronavirus quarantines, we are opening up the contest to not only chairs- but other items that you may have in your home. We all have at least one project piece that needs some TLC.   

Chances are, you have one or more just sitting around your home. You are only allowed to spend $10.00 or less! What? Yes!! We are using only what we already have on hand or what we can get off the curb or what we can upcycle CHEAPLY from a thrift store or a garage chairs, leftover materials, leftover paints and low cost decor items. It is possible! I can assure you! I am a picker and I know how to pick. I have painted and upholstered and or staged many items for under 10.00 each!!

You are welcome to make that chair/item into anything you want it to be! Use your imagination. Take a picture of the chair/item, tell us what you did or didn’t do to it (cause sometimes leaving it alone it the best thing to do).
