I wrote a piece recently on cool chairs. It got me to thinking how easy it would be to set up a little business creating really funky chairs out of materials found for free or nearly free just about anywhere. It is a lot easier to find used industrial parts than people realize. Often these parts can be cleaned up, polished, stained or painted and with a little creativity, turned into beautiful pieces of furniture that double as terrific conversation items.
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.
Choosing chair covers for your chairs also gives you a fantastic amount of flexibility as to the way your dining room will end up looking. You can choose from a wide range of different colors and fabrics. It is your choices as to whether you buy one set of high-quality covers which you will use to cover your chairs all of the time, or whether you select a number of different good-quality but inexpensive covers, allowing you to swap them around regularly, thus allowing you to refresh the look of your room as often as you want.
Chair covers can also be used to help you to upgrade the appearance of your chairs if you are planning a more formal occasion than those which you usually host in your dining room. A high-quality chair cover can allow your chair to look much nicer for your event, and not look out of place in a more formal setting. If you are just planning on getting these covers for a one off event, it may be possible for you to rent the covers for a few days, rather than having to buy them.
Chair rail ideas can certainly cover a wide range of designing goals. Whether searching for classic or kits, chairmolding gives a effective horizontal aspect to room styles, as well as supplying a excellent strategy to help preserve the condition of the wall a chair rail molding is attached on.
While looking for chair rail ideas anyone may also turn to other modes of designing. A flat, uncomplicated chair molding could be elevated by simply the add-on of a decorative band of wall paper. These border strips are generally applied at the top of a wall, however, if selected carefully may be used for a wide chair molding also. Be careful: most of the time you may wish to use either a ceiling high border or a band for the chair rail, however not both. Too much decoration is no longer a beautiful element, but mere clutter.
