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.
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.
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.
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.
If you do nothing else, take the time to decorate the bride and groom's chairs for the reception table. One pretty idea is to hang a custom initial on the back of each chair. The letters are usually created from natural materials such as moss or flowers (carnations work especially well). Use a pretty satin ribbon to suspend the initial on each seat. If you wish to take it one step further, add more embellishment to the custom initials. A bride who will be wearing crystal wedding jewelry can hang her initial on a strand of sparkling crystals instead of a ribbon, for example.
