Vintage Chair Drink Stand

I’m not sure how to start this post. Mostly because my husband has wanted me to ditch this chair for the last ten years! At nearly 100 years old, and a garage sale rescue from my mother’s attic, I knew it was destined for greatness. And I was right!! Call it upcycled or repurposed…this old chair makes a beautiful, interesting Vintage Chair Drink Stand! A great conversation piece!

Just the other day, I had a little get-together, using my Vintage Chair Drink Stand to hold extra bottles of wine for my guests! It grabbed everyone’s attention with many lovely comments! You can make one too…it was so easy!

As you can see, it was a diamond in the rough. I didn’t want to paint it…sand it…or change it too much.

All it needed was a little TLC. I turned to Old English Lemon Oil. Even says on the label “Tested for over 100 years.” Worked perfect for bringing out the natural wood color!

I suppose I could have made my mini chalkboard sign, but I bought a cute pack of pre-made ones that suited my needs…adding a few pretty ribbons!

I found the perfect galvanized bucket with handles – nice and deep for tall bottles! Love the rope handles.

  1. This is so adorable! I think I need to have a party just to use this idea. Thanks so much for sharing :)

  2. How creative! Absolutely love this idea :D I would love for you to share this post at my Create & Share Link Party tonight (7:00 PM MST)! Hope to see you there :) http://designsbymissmandee.blogspot.com/

  3. This is such a clever idea!

  4. Tara Threw says:

    Is the bucket wide enough, that it’s just sitting in the hole? Or is it suspended by something?
    It’s gorgeous!! Definitely on the lookout for a similar chair!

    • Thanks, Tara! I love my chair drink stand too! Yes, the bucket was wide enough at the top to sit perfectly in the chair. I didn’t need to attach it with anything. This also make it easy to dump the ice out at the end of the party…lifts right out!

  5. This is such a great idea. I love how it turned out and I can’t believe the job the Old English did on the wood!

  6. I so love this upcycle!! And what a great conversation piece at a party, too. I featured this at our link party this morning. Be sure to stop by and grab a feature button!
