Baby Redwood

This is one of my favorite projects that was made over the summer. We found a huge lot of redwood furniture on Craigslist early summer and Brian spent a good portion of his free time sanding, re-staining, fixing and then hunting for cushions so we could have a complete set on our patio. We had a gorgeous Sunday afternoon spent it with friends and it was pulled out once more before the nasty winter finally sets in..

Before:


After:


Brian took one of the ricketiest adult chairs and salvaged all the good pieces and turned it into a"baby" chair. More like a toddler chair but next to the full size chairs it's a baby. I made fun little cushions. We have one more chair to turn into one this size. So we'll have a set of two....for Elise and a little friend or a doll:).


Here is the chair naked.....we (he) kept the original design and look even down to the metal support for the bottom.


I think I'm already daydreaming of next summer.......and it's only November.......I'm doomed this winter.


I'm linking up here and here today! Check them up....lots of great ideas!
