3 Chair BenchJanuary 10th, 2009 in member junk
I've made a couple of these 3 chair benches and people seem to really like them. Different chairs, color, and seat coverings can completely change how it looks. So each one is certainly a 1-of-a-kind (or would that be 3-of-a-kind?). I think they're pretty easy to make. If you decide to give it a try, here's what you do:
You take 3 identical wooden chairs, preferably the kind with removable seats. It also helps if the front isn't too much wider than the back. Remove chair seats. The middle chair needs to be taken apart so you just have the back. Connect the 3 chairs together at the back. For the front middle, cut down the chair's original board to the size of the gap. Connect the 2 outer chairs with the board between. I attached everything with screws. Paint as you want. Cut a piece of plywood to fit the entire seat area. Cover as you want. Attach to chairs. That's it!
