Simple Chair

Submitted by Medickep on Wed, 11/06/2013 - 21:11

I needed some new chairs for my kids play room as the ones that came with a table they received as a gift were cheap and I had reinforced them three different times.

I liked the simple design of them and the cost is right! Mine were a little more as I used 2x2's for the legs and made the body of the chair double-braced as my boys are hard on things!!

My boys picked the colors, which the blue was left over from a room and the red from my older son's desk!

Estimated Cost
15 per chair
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Furring boards
Finish Used
I primed and painted the chairs with left over paint. On one of the chairs I used a spray polyurethane. On the other one, I used a foam brush with expensive (30.00 quart) polyacrylic as I wanted to see if there was a huge difference. I didn't care for the sprayed technique!
