I managed to get my hands on 6 vintage children’s school chairs, I absolutely love them and they were in pretty good condition considering the age.
I wanted to revive them so they can be put to good use, maybe in a child’s bedroom or in a craft area. I love them so much I am tempted to keep at least one for my little boy even though he has not yet progressed to sitting on a chair!
Here’s how they looked when I bought them –
The metal frames were quite rusty so these needed sanding and to be prepped ready for painting.
The wood was also lightly sanded to improve the surface and oiled which has given them a warm colour, there are still signs of their history with ink splodges visible which we think adds to the charm and with it being plywood too much sanding would ruin them.
I chose bright paint colours which should look vibrant and appeal to children (and their parents hopefully!) Such as teal, cornflower blue, pumpkin orange, pink, yellow and green.
Here is one of the finished chairs which is also now available to buy, follow this link http://www.backroomvintage.com/shop/vintage-childrens-school-chair
I hope you love them as much as we do and the other colors will be available soon too.
