I hate to waste. I have an attic full of things "we might use" at a later date. I have been very keen on redusing our collection this year so it has to find a home at our house or it goes to someone else. Bit by bit I have been reducing our clutter and our unused stuff.

I bought these chair several years ago from IKEA on clearance for our from patio. I never really used them. Once I we moved to OK we used them on our back porch a few times but after a few weeks they looked so nasty from weathering that I never wanted to sit on them. I have been looking for something to do with them. This spring they found their home. My daughter and I were looking around for something to use as a trellis and found these chairs all fold up. She took them apart removing the support leg and voila a perfect sollution!
