Big Ring & Dining Chairs

I'm sure you're familiar with those fashionable big rings everybody's wearing.  I luv them but personally I think my fingers are too short & stubby so big rings sort of over power my hands.  Anyhow when I saw this ring I knew it was the right ring for me...





I liked it so much I bought 4 of them...yep!  Not 1 or 2, I wanted 4 of the same rings.  I know you're wondering why. 




 Definitely not for my fingers.  What caught my attention was the stretchy band.





And that's why I bought 4 of them!  Remember my dining chairs I covered sometime back? (click here)   I decided I wanted to dress them up a bit.  So I took some sheer fabric I had lying around (the same sheer fabric I used for my dining room window treatment).






I folded the fabric to go around the bottom back of the chair.









I then used the ring to hold it in place in the back




Four rings for 4 chairs!



The rings were $1.50 each and I already had fabric.  Total cost for the update, a Whopping $6!

Who said rings should be worn on our fingers only??? LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!

Another brilliant idea, Sherry! Those are nice rings, but you're right, they're better as home decor (they're freakin' HUGE) What an imaginative way to use them.

Those rings are so pretty. And they look great on the chairs. Chair jewelry - who would have thought but you!? Great idea!

Donna Wilkes said...

Love the bling for the classy-looking chairs! I don't wear jewelry any more - maybe I can recycle what I have! Thanks for your visit to my blog!

Now that was a beautiful way to use them! I thought you were going to use them as napkin rings, but that is even better!
Blessings,
