Pallet Wood Ceilings

What’s a girl to do when she has a ton of pallet wood in her garage? I do have friends who have requested signs—and yes, I’m getting to those! But I have so much of this wood that I know I’ll never use it all and it’s taking up valuable real estate that need to be occupied by chairs.  It just so happens that I’ve had problem in my studio.

Calling All UGLY Chairs for a Free Makeover!

Well, it’s that time of year…we are in full mode of Spring cleaning (or we should be!) and you might have stumbled across that ugly antique, vintage, or newer chair sitting in the back of your garage waiting for a makeover.  Here’s your chance to win a makeover for that ugly chair!

How? Send me a picture of your desperate chair for the chance to win a makeover. You can either respond to my Chair Whimsy Facebook post with a photo, reply to this post with your photo on Twitter, tag @chairwhimsy with a photo on Instagram, or email it to me at

The deadline is Wednesday, so don’t delay. Once I have all the submissions, I’ll select a few chairs and let everyone vote on the ugliest chairs. The chair with the most votes at that time will win the makeover.

*You will need to pack the chair and ship it from your nearest Greyhound bus station, but don’t worry—I’ll guide you through that process and pay for the shipping both ways. Then, I’ll help you decide on paint and fabric for your new chair makeover. And it’s all FREE! What deal, huh? We will finish it off with a big reveal with before and after photos.



So hurry and send me your ugly chair photo and be sure to pass this post along to others that you know who have ugly chairs in need of a makeover, too. Deadline is Wednesday at midnight.

Go UGLY chairs!
