A few years ago, my sweet grandpa gave me this chair. He heard I was looking for an old chair and someone had given it to him.
I liked the look of the chair. It was a nice size and I thought it was a cute chair. I just wasn’t too sure about that metal woven seat. The metal was a little sharp and I was worried about my kids cutting their fingers.
So I removed it. I then painted the chair yellow.
I also used a little sandpaper to distress it a bit.
I took some old wood planks and laid them across the bottom rungs of the chair.
I love how cute and unique this chair plant stand is. Plus, if I get tired of it, I can build a new seat for it.
But, the color brightens up our porch, and we get lots of compliments on our “fern chair.”
My two daughters are competitive dancers. While custom costumes are the way to go for competition, it’s also a much more expensive route. Thankfully, there are ways to customize an existing costume and make it seem like a custom.
1. Buy costume separates or a shell
2. Choose the embellishments youwanttouse
3. Add embellishments to the bottom
4. Add embellishments to the top
The result is a very cute, very sparkly one-of-a-kind costume. This was surprisingly easy and you can do it too!!
