in this project, I reclaimed old chairs from tipical french “Bistrot” (bars).
They was destroy and I tryed to save them. I need always to save a maximum of wood!
And when I’m looking my chairs, I imagine so many different people seated on it!!!

1. Not 2 identiques. The all of them has a different shape.
2. Add differents cover of famous wines box
The last is my creation: it’s my house burned on a piece of wood to look like the same as a famous wine box!!! lol
Remarks: a lot of fun for me and to much differents things makes by wine box for my wife!!! ;-)))
ps: did you understood my “strange” english?
All the best everybody

Great chairs. Yes I was able to understand. How are you going to use them? Dining room table?

Well done Oncle

Maybe we could empty a few of those boxes together, that way I could take some home for my projects.

A very creative idea

Ingenious way to salvage the wood! I like that they are all different.
