You know that phenomenon that happens when you decide you want something like a red sports car and then you start seeing them everywhere? That’s happening to me right now with chairs. Not only am I spotting chairs by the side of the highway and wanting to slam on my breaks and throw them in my car, but my eyes zero in on any article or ad that focuses on chairs.
One day my design partner and I were cleaning out a condo our client had bought furnished. She was getting rid of a pair of fabulous Victorian chairs. I had to wrestle with taking these beauties home for my Take a Seat project. But I decided donating them to Habitat for Humanity was another great way to support our cause.
But look what else I found that might become part of my entry. These drapery panels might be the perfect thing. What do you think?
Upcycling or repurposing is not only environmentally responsible but totally creative and fun. Combining it all with raising funds for our local Veterans and their families through Habitat for a Humanity makes it a huge WIN WIN.
I found these chairs on Pinterest. Aren’t they are incredible? What creativity!

We would love to hear about what’s inspiring your chair entry for TAS ( Take a Seat). Are you activity looking around for a candidate? Try checking Habit for Humanity, or look around at home. Are you picking up remnants, seashells, driftwood? Do you have odd collections of old “stuff” just begging to be brought back to life? Let us in on what’s triggering your creativity! Take a Seat is going to be so much fun.
As always we look forward to hearing from you in the comment section.
