Hi All! Today’s project is a repurposed chippy chair back. My cousin asked me if I wanted this chippy wood chair back, Heck yeah! I love the chippy look, and boy was this one chippy! Before I could even start to work on it, I had to use a spray sealer to stop the chipping of the paint. My idea for this chair back was to make a door wreath for my front door.

Repurposed Chippy Chair Back
Started off using a wire brush and gently knocking off any loose paint left after spraying on the polyurethane sealer to stop the chipping. Then I added another coat of the polyurethane to help seal the chipping.
Once dry the chair back was flipped upside down and I then stenciled the word Welcome on the lower section of the inside curve of the chair back.
Next, for the repurposed chippy chair back I attached a wire wreath to the upper portion of the chair back with some floral wire. I also added a wire loop to the back for hanging the repurposed chair.
This was a fun and easy way to repurpose a chair back where the floral stems can be changed out for the season or holidays. Since the chippy wall décor was too large to hang on my door as planned, I hung it on the brick wall beside our front door.
Do you think my repurposed chippy chair back needs a bow at the top or do you think that the floral stems are enough?
