A Walk Through on my Chair

So many people asked me to show the step by step pictures I took when I was making THIS chair. You’re probably wondering why I took the pictures. Well, I’ve learned that it’s better to go ahead and do it on a one shot deal like this and toss them out if you decide not to use them. Step by steps take a long time, but this is one I didn’t think I’d be sharing. Thank you so much for asking. I think I bought this chair at Big Lots or TJ Maxx . . . from time to time I see others like it – this one just happened to be unfinished. I’ll take you on a quick tour through how I put it together and I hope it will spur some ideas on other altered things you might make. (P.S. The paper I used is an older paper from K&Co – it’s possibly my favorite and my stash has gotten dangerously low ;-).

That’s all folks!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

    Excellant instructions and beautiful work. It’s amazing how you were able “to see” what this plain chair could become.ReplyCancel

    As usual Becca, the work is stunning and the details are extremely easy to follow….now we can make one if we would like or just sit and admire yours and all the work you put into it!

    Cool, very cool. I’m thinking calendar for a desk, hmmm or seating assignment for a party (stamping, scrapbooking or dinner). LOVE IT!!!ReplyCancel

    Becca thank you so much for this! This is such an adorable little chair and what a great gift idea for those special ladies in our life. Now if I can just find some of these little chairs….!!!!

    Wow – now I have a completely different perspective of the the Chair Note Pad. I love the uniqueness of this project. Very very cool, indeed. I won’t be donating those cute items I’ve had stored around for ages now. You have inspired me to alter what I have instead of buying “new”. Thanks for sharing the process on”how to”.ReplyCancel

    Becca, Thank you so much for the instructions on making this chair. When I first saw it I absolutely fell in love with it. I’ve been anxiously waiting for the details. I follow your blog every day (yours is the first one I look at) and am amazed at your talent. Thank you for all your inspiration and all the beautiful cards you make.ReplyCancel

    This chair is SO creative! Thanks for posting the directions. It seems entirely “do-able” and I would love to try it! You’re the best.ReplyCancel

    Good evening, Becca; thank you so much for the tutorial on your little chair project- as usual it is very easy to follow. I would love to try it when we eventually are able to buy the new nestabilities in UK. I do have one question, however. The scalloped octagons on the rolodex pages are green, yet the scalloped octagons in the box are in floral paper/card. Are the green scalloped octagons backed with floral scallops or are these for a different purpose?ReplyCancel

  • MrsHMarch 4, 2009 - 4:17 pm

    Scrub that question, Becca. Silly me has decided to have a look at the original project and I have seen that the scallops in the tin are actually notelets.ReplyCancel

    Thanks for the tutorial Becca. I’ll be keeping an eye out everywhere I go, including garage sales, for one of these darling chairs. You completely fooled me with the size. I had imagined much larger. Thanks again for the details. Linda S. in NEReplyCancel
