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.
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.
A lot of furniture can be found in a typical business set up but one of the most important fixtures is the chairs employees use. There are several things that you should consider when getting chairs or office furniture, one is its capacity to keep you awake all throughout the day.
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 want to spend time relaxing with your family and friends, your front porch is the perfect place to do that. If you have the right front porch furniture, especially porch rocking chairs, then everyone will enjoy spending time together on the porch just relaxing or even playing games.
