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. 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!

    1. 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!

  2. I love this idea! What a great way to use something that you could have laying around. Thank you for linking up to Party Time and we hope to see you again next week!

  3. Ok… now someone has a bad case of the smarts! I love this idea!
    We have just bought a historic home out in the country and are thinking of offering the grounds for weddings… I am pinning this to my inspiration board… how great would a row of these beauties be for an outdoor event!

    1. How cool would to have several mismatched chairs offering different drinks in each one! I always thought it would be fun to have a unique wedding venue. I hope that works out for you!

    1. That means a lot, Donna, coming from you! I am sure you have seen a lot of repurposed chairs! I have to say I am delighted with it as well! Thanks for the FB share…I will be sharing your Junk File Sorter tomorrow!

  4. Susan –

    I think you did an amazing job giving that beautiful old chair a new purpose! I’m so glad you didn’t ditch it! I have recently started a new link up party with Refresh Living and Vintage Refined and we would love to have you stop by and link with us! The party starts every Tuesday @7pm CST.

    I hope to see you there!

    1. Thank you, Cat! I’m glad I found a new purpose for this old chair! It’s a great conversation piece at parties. I will try to stop by your link party!

    1. I bought it at the Tuesday Mornings store two years ago. I’m not sure if you would be able to find it again…

  5. Great site you have here but I was curious if you knew of
    any message boards that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get responses from other experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

  6. This was easy to make. I make something for our annual family reunion, for an auction we have. The money goes to first year college students for books.

    1. I’m glad you liked this project – it is super easy to make! I actually use the chair and bucket for different things during the year – holiday decorations and to display plants.
