When you think about how many chairs are used in the average wedding reception, it becomes clear that this is key area of the overall wedding decor. So many brides make the mistake of overlooking the chairs at their reception, instead of finding ways to make the seating a beautiful addition to the wedding. Take advantage of the design opportunity presented by the seating at your wedding with one of these cute ideas for reception chair decorations.
Looking for more cute ways to decorate your reception chairs? Use your wedding theme as inspiration. Tie sand dollars to the chair backs for a beach wedding or use jeweled snowflake ornaments for a winter wedding. Because there are so many chairs at a wedding reception, paying a little attention to decorating them will pay big dividends in the overall wedding design.
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.
Office chair casters are just a tiny part in this process when figuring all this out. You will need to decipher how much of a need you will have to move these chairs around. If you are fairly sure once this setup is complete it's not going to be moved than you might decide to not worry about getting them at all.
The first thing that you will notice when you own one of these chairs is that they tend to collect dust and dirt. The wicker just being the nature of the material has a lot of little cracks and surface areas that dirt and dust can collect. This can become a large problem because even inside these chairs can start to look dirty and grimy really quickly with normal usage. Especially on everyone's country style favorite color that has been a number one seller; white. It is just not a good idea to have wicker dining room chairs. Along with this fact, leads directly into another problem with maintenance of these chairs. If they are close or in the kitchen or nook off of the kitchen they tend to collect any grease that may splatter up in the air from cooking. This mixed with dust and grime really can cause this kind of furniture to be hard to clean.
A typical quality beanbag chair will have a durable muslin inner bag that holds the beans, or filling. Then it has an outer cover that can later be taken off and laundered as needed, this cover has a zipper on it (or Velcro closures). It takes 3-5 yards of fabric each for the inner case and the outer cover of an adult size chair, the outer cover will need a long zipper (or Velcro). Each adult chair requires about 6 cu. feet of filling.
