Driving into work, arriving at the car park, I noticed that the big skip was being filled with rubbish by workmen…I spotted a beautiful retro school chair and my eyes lit up. I pulled up next to the skip and politely enquired if I could have the ‘rusty old chair ‘at the top of the pile ….if so could they put it in my boot?
They complied with both my requests.
A plan was hatching in my huge brain…. (haha)…!
Later that week, I approached the subject of the chair with my ‘talented other half ‘and discussed my plans and ideas with him. He got to work….
…..took it apart….inspected it…..
had it ‘blasted’
and repainted it…in my requested colour….
A few weeks later he brought home this beautifully restored, school chair, to live in our kitchen.
A Retro Chair: from this…….to this…..
Only problem is….. the workmen offered me two more…but I refused because they were too dirty to put in my car….kicking myself!
After: the glorious retro chair restoration !
Do have a look at my other Interior posts for more inspiration!
