Upcycle Old Chairs Into A Creative Bench
Christina Caldwell 5/27/2016
Just because you're retiring that old kitchen table doesn't mean the chairs have to go for good. These chair-to-bench upcycles will turn your old, beat-up seating into versatile furniture.
Put Some Wood On It
For a rustic look, attach two old chairs and finish them with a wood topper. If your old chairs need new life, a dose of spray paint will spruce them right up. It's a simple DIY project that will instantly transform drab chairs into something spectacular.
You Might As Well Face It
Blogger Redoux Interiors took two beat up chairs and turned them into something wholly unique. Rather than facing the chairs outward, she faced them toward each other, giving the quirky-yet-classic look of upcycled-meets-upscale furniture.
Go Green (Or Yellow! Or Blue!)
This colorful design started as three old fashioned upholstered chairs, but Kindall's Creations had a different idea for her less-than-bright furniture.
Break It Down To Build Anew
After taking the old upholstery off and adding a cheery fabric to replace it, these colorful chairs become one adorable bench.
Mismatch Made In Heaven
Use mismatching wooden chairs to craft a quirky, stand-out bench for the garden or even indoors.

Wood For Good
If you have some spare lumber on hand, DIY Pete has a plan for you. These custom-crafted chairs quickly turn into a bench with the addition of a tray in the middle for your most important items like wine, cheese and other outdoor-friendly snacks.
Speaking Of Wine...
Use this cute hack for an incognito holder for one of life's simplest pleasures.
One blogger saw these beat up old benches and knew she could transform them into something remarkable.
Instead of the standard straight bench, Deja Vue Designs added a touch of creativity with this curved look.
Keep It Simple
If you prefer order to chaos, Frou Frugal has the perfect upcycle for you. Using three of the same chair and one color of blue paint, the blogger turned her standard chairs into something colorful and classic.
Become A Bench Warmer
If you have cold-looking, outdated chairs, you're just a few steps away from these warm and inviting bench designs. Get your thinking caps on, because the design possibilities are endless!
