If you are curious about seeing the potential that is out there, than you should be inclined to do a little research on the subject and where better to start this inquiry than on the Internet. This way you can get a broad spectrum of the specifics that are involved with this process.
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.
For a garden wedding, it would be fantastic to decorate the reception chairs with fresh flowers. Swags of greens and flowers are a beautiful way to dress up the backs of white chairs. If it is too costly to do for the entire wedding, at least think about draping swags on the chairs at the head table. Floral pomanders are another cute decoration to hang on the backs of the wedding chairs. Create the pomanders in a cheerful color like bright pink or yellow so they really stand out against the white chairs. Add a colorful ribbon in a polka dot or gingham pattern for a whimsical touch.
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.
Chair covers for your dining room chairs are an excellent idea, especially if you have young children. With children, accidents do happen, and food can easily get spilled, especially if the food is relatively liquid or has a higher oil content. Some children may even be inclined to wipe their greasy fingers on the chairs after they have eaten, even if they are given a napkin to use! Spills, stains and oily marks can be quite difficult to remove from your chairs, unless you have chair covers. Removable covers will allow you to take off the cover if it gets messy, and then wash it properly, away from the chair. If you have young children, investing in inexpensive, machine washable covers could be a brilliant idea for you.
Be sure to keep the size in proportion to the room as well as the additional decorative elements, though: a wide molding in a small room filled with fine, dainty furnishings will appear gawky and awkward. Too slender a rail in a larger room decorated with grand set pieces of furniture could look too insignificant and frail for the setting it is placed in. All the chair molding ideas you think about should take into consideration the design of the home where they will be seen.
