If you do nothing else, take the time to decorate the bride and groom's chairs for the reception table. One pretty idea is to hang a custom initial on the back of each chair. The letters are usually created from natural materials such as moss or flowers (carnations work especially well). Use a pretty satin ribbon to suspend the initial on each seat. If you wish to take it one step further, add more embellishment to the custom initials. A bride who will be wearing crystal wedding jewelry can hang her initial on a strand of sparkling crystals instead of a ribbon, for example.
It is not always necessary to cover wedding chairs with slipcovers to make them prettier. If the chair itself is already attractive, you might just want to add a little decoration to it. For a formal evening wedding, gold tassels would be an elegant addition to the backs of the reception chairs. Make the bride's chair extra special by designing a custom tassel made entirely of crystals - all the better to complement her crystal wedding jewelry, of course. The tassel motif would be wonderful to use selectively in other parts of the wedding design, such as on the napkins or as a design motif printed on the place cards.
These fun-loving chairs are quite popular and easy to make. If you enjoy sewing, this is a 'business idea' that might appeal to you. The profits are quite good too; these chairs are just a big bag full of stuffing or beans. The popular filling these days is polystyrene pellets because they are lightweight. So there isn't a lot of sewing required, you don't even need to put a zipper on it, unless you want to.
Here are a couple chair ideas. Go exploring your own town and see where you can find discarded wooden window blinds. Cut them to about three feet wide stain and generously clear-coat them. You'll need to cut out a support form which you should find easily enough on the web by searching for 'window blind chair'. Cheap plywood will do the job. Cut the two support forms and glue/nail it all in place. After a few cracks at it you'll end up being able to build wonderfully cool chairs that cost next to nothing and can easily be sold for $100.00. The second is simply an old steel drum. These can be found anywhere for free and only need a good cleaning and some clear coat finish. Take a look at the photo. You only need to make a good cut, cover the edge with rubber edging and add a cheap cushion and some $10.00 legs. Again - this should sell for $100.00 easy.
Generally chair rail is basically molding that has plain rounded edges, although more complex routed moldings perform just as adequately. Just as the sophisticated curves and fancy routed molding can enhance your chair rail, so can embossed moldings or pressed wood or resin moldings. Any of these versions of molding provides an aspect of depth to what is otherwise a fairly plain horizontal line around the middle of a room.
If you are preparing a baby's room or play room, think about devoting one wall or part of a wall to pegged molding. In a child's room such pegs could substitute closets, or allow a wide range of packs, bags, and looped toys to be hung up out of the way. Keep in mind that chair molding could include practical attributes such as this.
