I got these 7 chairs for free last week. Two don't have backs but all are quite sturdy. Do I need to sand before painting? Thoughts besides planters?
Love the front far left 1 & probably 1 beside it & paint them pretty color & use as chairs in garden or on patio. Round table between them & all set for conversation with a friend! 1 without back could be painted up & near that setting with a plant on it. Need extra chairs on patio? Paint up other ones & sell them if you don't have a use for them. Price was right & you could do a little work prettying them up & sell what you don't need. Great find! Oh, if shiny at all sand them.

Looks like they would need some roughed-up sanding for paint to stick. If you don't want to keep them all as chairs, take a few apart ...there's lots of wonderful 'spindles'(backs & legs) to be used in projects! Jeanne S.
I made a garden lady out of an old chair years ago. We enjoyed it very much. A neighbor always said she waved at him every day. I might do that again? I am feeling crafty-- ENJOY!! Jlily
I would do this type of multi color painting on them, they sell really well.

Great score! I wonder if you might take a couple of chairs and cut a hole in the seat to insert a flower pot? Those seem to be real popular when a growing plant is inserted.
how about a wall shelf for the ones without backs? Attach inside or out...
I know this is a long link but it shows hundreds of ideas. I like the shelf made with the back of the chair and part of the seat. You definately have an awesome find!
the swings made from the old chairs are awesome!
I use a backless one in the flower bed with a large ceramic flower pot base on it for a birdbath. It is the one the birds love best.
