Sometimes a chair is just a chair, but if you're Melissa, you look at this broken dining chair and see another piece of furniture entirely.

Bravo! Melissa didn't get stuck on its original function so she could see a table where a chair used to be. She simply removed the cushion, cut off the broken back, added a hardwood top cut to size and gave the whole thing a coat of bright white. We love it and, more importantly, so does Melissa. She says, "It was a fast afternoon project with a big impact!"

Thank you Melissa!
