When you are searching for porch rockers, you want to be sure that you take time to find ones that are comfortable to sit in. Adding cushions is a nice, comfortable touch and also allows you to show off your decorating style even more. Try to get cushions that are made of fabric that is intended for outdoors. That way they will not fade as much in the sun and tend to dry more quickly after a rain. Always take into consideration the weather of where you live also. Since the chairs will be outdoors on your front porch you have to be sure that they will withstand the elements like hot sun, wind, hot and cold temperatures and humid or dry air. Otherwise, your investment will be short-lived.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
