Reclining chairs are available in different shapes and sizes. Some recliner furniture can be small for them to be accommodated in limited areas or in large areas but cramped with other items like tables, cabinets or dividers.
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.
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.
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.
Color and design could bring yet an additional dimension to ones own chair molding. Chair molding is frequently painted white against a contrasting background, or are colored a light shade against a white or ecru colored background. In some examples, though, a deep, bold color can easily spark up the individuality of a room.
If the chairs at your dining room table are beginning to look past their best, then you have a few options available to you; do nothing and continue on with tired, worn out chairs; buy a completely new set of chairs; or invest in a set of chair covers to help you to breathe new life into the existing set. If your budget will not stretch to a whole new set of chairs for your dining room table, then buying chair covers could be the right answer for you.
