I owned a bar once upon a time and we really bootstrapped it. We were short on start up money and needed a bunch of tables. These tables also had to be quite durable as our clientele tended to drink and carry on quite a bit. I'll admit that it wasn't me but my partner Scott that came up with the idea. Industrial spools. We found a place in Montreal that sold and re-sold huge industrial spools, the kind that can carry a few miles of telephone wire, anywhere from two to ten feet in diameter. We rented a van and went down there. The place was totally fine with us helping ourselves to six spools, each about four feet high and four feet in diameter. We simply sanded them down and applied generous amounts of shellac. They turned out beautifully.
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.
Porch rocking chairs will not only add comfort to your front porch, but they also give a "come and stay a while" feel for anyone that comes over. Rocking chairs have been around for years on front porches because they make the perfect place for sitting and enjoying conversation.
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.
When you have the vision in your mind of setting up office decor and conference room chairs you just assume to yourself when the time comes we will get a table and some seating and that will be that. If you do not have a specific idea in mind you could find yourself getting lost in a sea of selections.
When it comes to prefer chair covers, there are two preferences around. In case you are well prepared with your wedding day idea, you'll then often involve the covers to this unique layout or generate inspiring difference through producing another color.
