Upcyling Dining Chairs into Beds, Swings, and Benches

Jan 25, 2011 by

Dining chairs can open a wealth of inspiration once you take them away from the dining table.  With their solid bones, repurposing dining chairs can give you benches, swings, and even a bed!  Be inspired by these three ideas to upcycle dining chairs that no longer find a place at your dining table.

Ashley Eriksmoen combined two found dining chairs together to create a lovely sitting bench.  The new result is more modern, and I would love to see a version like this painted and upholstered in a more colorful hue.

MyAppleTreeAndMe cleverly repurposed a charming dining chair into the perfect tree swing!

Classic Martha Stewart repurposed four vintage bentwood dining chairs into a lovely daybed.  This is a great DIY project that can instantly give you guest bedroom furniture!

Tables and chairs usually go hand-in-hand, but viewing dining chairs as their own creations opens up a wealth of inspiration!
