Broken Chair...Headed For Trash

anybody have a teenager? how about a teenager that has a party while you are out of town? or one that has a party and breaks a chair? i'm sure i'm not the only one...kids do stupid things all the time...and i really liked this chair..
 
here is the chair that i dug out of the storage building...around here we tend to pile all of our junk in the building til we get ready to throw it out...i knew that it could be fixed...i just kept putting it off...do other people do that?

i used wood screws and wood glue to get it put back together...i always forget to take pictures in the right order...i just get too excited...i've been using these bed risers to do my painting on...they work perfect
the foot rest...it wasn't broken
here it is all finished...i painted it the same color as i painted my outdoor end table...if you would like to read about it click here...
trying really hard to get my porch spruced up..we still don't have the cover off of our pool yet...just so much i want to do and not enough time
another before and after...i'm in love once again :)

  4. lol! I totally laughed after reading the first part. Oh geesh, my kids have a couple more years before they're teenagers....I'm not sure I'm ready for it!

    Great job fixing the chair! Maybe it was better after, because I love the color!
    Thanks for linking it up @ Creatively Living!
