I took the back of the chair off and repaired that side, as the brackets weren't in place anymore. The holes needed to be filled with wood filler, then I got to painting with some DIY chalk paint.
The good old mix with 3 parts paint, 1 part plaster, and some water.
The jury is still out on this one. I have mixed results. If you have any pointers I would gladly welcome them!
I had this tray that I made out of a cupboard door a while back that I thought would be a great topper.
What do you think? Good idea or should I turn it into a bench?
