This is the final product. It sold for a perfect price for the charity and I do think I shall make one for myself!
This is the before and after - simply put together to play the - Which piece went where - game :)
I was given a corner bench from someone, the flip top was broken on one section and the other two bench parts were pretty damaged and used for another project :) I fixed the wooden flip top with a plank, and used the arms from another old chair I dismantled earlier in the year. ( I wanted the springs and tacs and had no clue what to do with the rest... so it sat. And of course the door.
Here is the top of the door - I used the backing of an old washstand to create a shelf on top. Ideal spot for a nice plant or photos, baskets even? I also added a few coat hooks. I had the idea that someone might use this besdie their front door to sit and put shoes on?
A close up of the bench seat. The seat flips up for storage and the arms off the old chair were attached to the sides.
Here is the old chair of long ago. This is how it came to me ..... I had to have the springs and tacs for another project. I was left with the wooden frame and no clue what to do with it ..... the middle back actually became a bar stool seat - and of course - I never took pictures of that project :(

This is the Chair for Chair-ity I created for an auction for the YMCA. It was a hot mess before the paint hit her. And I had a lot of strange looks. But after it was done - the ooo's and ahhh's came out! Its quite the fun-k-tional little piece provinding you have the room at your front door for it. I did love making her! Each picture should have a nice little caption of whats going on with it all. And as soon as I find a narrow enough door again - I shall be making one for myself - but in black :)
