Chair #2! Each month we are creating or better yet, re-creating a chair. Here's what we've come up with for April's chair.
This chair was recently featured in the Habitat for Humanity Restore "Furniture Flip Design Challenge." All proceeds of the sale of this chair will go to Habitat for Humanity. Part of the design challenge competition was to take an item from Habitat's Restore shop and give it new life. This chair has received a full make-over. Check out the after and before pictures below.
The wood back and seat frame are made from salvaged beams from the Brooks-Scanlon Mill in Bend, Oregon. This reclaimed wood gives this chair history and adds to its story. The base, legs and bottom arm bases are original to the chair.
She sits pretty! She has a nice recline and rock. No swivel, but she rocks! She'd be a great addition as a lounge chair in an office or front room. She'd also weather nicely on a covered front porch. The chair is for sale on the shop link and could be yours!
