From Council Dump to Interior Funk


Anthropologie Overdyed Terai Folding Chair2

Anthropologie Overdyed Terai Folding Chair


A few times a year we are allowed to put all of our junk on the curb for the council clean up, and this weekend was just one of those clean up days.  That said not much usually makes it to council clean up day because, as fast as you put it on the curb, a little white van is parked up to pick it up… the modern day rag and bone man.  I have no issue with this as I would rather it end up being recycled than in land fill…. but my curiosity would love to know what happens to it. One such disposed item was an odd lonesome wooden outdoor chair…. ( a little like the photo below – which I had to source off of Etsy as the little white van man had got there before I had chance to take a shot!.. gotta be fast!!)

Not to be deterred from my creative thoughts about how you could make these into something a little different I found these Overdyed Terai Folding Chairs from Anthropologie,

So  given the challenge of taking this chair from Council dump to interior funk…. what would you do?  Would be great hear…. meanwhile on with the colourful adventure.
