Shabby Chairs and Chair Rugs

March 21, 2014

I guess you could call this shopping in the barn, but I no longer have my barns. 🙁 Somehow “shopping in the storage unit” just doesn’t have the right ring to it. 🙂

Yep, these three chairs were stored in the barn before we moved. The only place to move them was to a storage unit. As the weather warms up I will be going through the units (we have two) to decide what will be sold at a yard sale and what I can use (and still store) for projects. These chairs were a no-brainer. I knew exactly what I was going to do with them.

I went shabby chic. Each chair was painted white before receiving a worn and distressed sanding.

I loved them…,

…but they looked kinda…


I decided to add…

…chair rugs.

I crocheted them with fabric strips.

Now, don’t they look cozy?

  1. Been such a long time since I’ve seen chair rugs, such a great accessory it’s great to bring them back. Wish I could still crochet. Been so long I’ve forgotten and my hands don’t work well enuf anymore. I sure miss it tho. Kept my hands busy at night to keep me from eating, by the time I’d do one more row I’d be out of the mood for whatever it was I thought I had to have. No will power. .
    Love your chairs. and the rugs are perfect, very vintage. I have some chairs out in our shed I’d like to work on, see what I can do and how well. Happy Spring days
