Driving to a nearby estate sale the other day, I slowed down when I spotted some vintage chair legs sticking out of a pile of junk destined for the landfill. I stopped and checked things out (can't break that habit!) and spotted these great orange hair dressers chairs.
They looked good, no tears in the vinyl, all the legs there and they hadn't been rained on yet, but we were due for a thunderstorm. I left them there and continued on to the estate sale where I scored a few small things.
I couldn't stop thinking about those chairs though. Maybe I could just remove the legs and at least save them from the landfill? Finally I couldn't stand it any longer and I got the pickup truck. The chairs were still there, and I figured I would just bring them home with me rather than stand in the street and strip pieces off of them. You can see where this is going, can't you? :-)
If they get in the way or become a nuisance, I can always part them out, right?
Check out those cast aluminum armrests. These chairs would be perfect seating in my future garage, but there's absolutely no room in the man cave or the rumpus room or anywhere in the house. So for now, they're living in the back of the truck.
You can see the hole in the back of the chair where these at one time had those old beehive hair dryers. I'm thinking maybe I'll get some PVC pipe and paint it and maybe wire up some kind of lamp for each chair. Maybe I should make my own Captain Kirk Star Trek Chairs!
Hit me with your ideas, and maybe these will become a future project!
