Towel Basket & Computer Chair

First let me apologize for the quality of these pictures.  Some are quite dark & others too light ;(


My son had an old computer chair where the back had came off.  Generally we just kicked it around in the house to kick our feet up on when watching TV or for other trivia things. 






I decided I wanted to use it for my towel basket that I kept placed on the floor in my bath.







I first spray painted the chair jade, I had to use 2 cans of paint to get a even coat over the black.  Then I grabbed some silk flowers to attach to the basket with raffia.








 

I rearranged my towels, and that was it!








Napkin rings & silk leaf for towels








There you have it.  Not much, but lifting the basket off the floor does makes for better.







LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!

Sherry, That's so darn cute. I like the idea of a rolling basket. That would work in crafting areas too. Smiles, Susie

Oh jade, such a pretty shade of green. Great way to get the basket off the floor.

The basket definitely looks better off the floor. Love the colour of the chair and the styling - great job !

You have a remarkable way of looking at things. What a vision. I would have tossed it, not seeing it as anything but a broken chair. You are the ultimate recycler. :)

Another lovely idea. You always have a way of taking the ordinary and making it a bit more extraordinary.

I love the jade color Sherry. I wouldn't have thought of that in a million years. I am going to pin this because we have a chair like that.

That's what you call repurposing. I bet it's easier to move around if you have to. Great idea!!!!

Hi pretty Sherry! Oh, I wish you were my neighbor! :) You're just amazing with these ideas you come up with. I love the color and basket. I have a little desk chair and don't tell anyone, but the seat and back are orange!
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)
