Trash to Treasure Outdoor Décor Hop: Broken Chair Repair
I love getting together with friends to show you a group of ideas and today is a fun one! My trash to treasure hunting buddies are sharing outdoor decor with you today…12 ideas in all, be sure to check out the list below. I’ve had two broken chairs waiting a longtime for their day in the sun!
Originally these matched, but unmatched chairs were purchased at a garage sale for $1/each. Honestly, that’s like giving them away. (I got some other amazing chairs you can see here) I bought them for my kid’s play house with plans to paint them bright colors with oilcloth seats. That never happened. I know y’all think I do a ton of projects here and I do, but I have a ton that get left undone too! With the whole playhouse to chicken coop conversion we have going on all the furniture from the playhouse got displaced which worked out great for a little sitting area I have been dreaming of!
Our front porch is long and kind of boring. I added a headboard bench last year with intentions of creating a nice little sitting area, so finally I’m one step closer with these chairs!
The two broken chairs are matching but the back of one had been cut down for some reason. To solve the uneven back situation I simply cut the other chair down to match with a chop saw.
These guys got a spray coat of my handy homemade chalky paint in my favorite color. I busted out the paint sprayer and tent for this project and the chairs only took a few minutes to coat. (I might have painted a few other things too 🙂 )

As for the seat covers, I love that fact that they already have been dressed in multiple decades! First in mauve velvet and next in country corn flower blue print. You know every time they got covered the owner thought, this will never go out of style, lol!
Well, my trendy fabric for this makeover is also CHEAP!!! I headed to a local specialty coffee roaster and picked up some coffee bean sacks for $2/each. It was fun, they let me dig through the stack they had and pick out the patterns I liked best, of course I grabbed some extras for some other projects I am thinking of!
There is a table I plan on re-doing to nestle in between these chairs and I’d like to add some other décor to make this a cozy porch sittin’ kind of place, but for today my stubby little broken chairs are looking so cute I’m gonna sit back and enjoy them!
