Yay! My stools are made. No major hiccups. And I am very pleased with them.
Given that I don’t have an island bench, I popped past Elise’s to give them a test run.
So … I think they look great as bar stools.
And then I tried them as bedside tables.
And they could even be used as coffee tables.
I hope someone buys them in the chair auction at Art4All this year.
Every couple of years someone makes a ‘garden chair’, that is, a chair turned into a garden, for the Art4All chair auction. This year Elise is having a crack …
She bought a white chair from the tip shop last weekend. She took it apart. And spray painted it black. And put it back together with a handy hessian and plastic ‘pouch’ now suspended under the seat. And filled the pouch with soil. And added plants.
She made it at my house … lucky me. I get to look at it (ie. store it and water it and keep it in tip top condition) for 4 weeks. All I can say is that if survives it’s time with me with the current amount of attention I am paying to house duties, it will survive anywhere!
Luckily she’s filled it up with succulents. And geraniums … so it’s pretty much indestructible. Fingers crossed …
It looks great, doesn’t it?
