I love the look of bent plywood chairs, and I am always looking for used ones at a good price. Last year I found these 4 old school chairs with built in desks at a local secondhand store. They were asking just $5 each, so of course I couldn't resist. I figured it would be easy enough to transform them into a regular chair. It took a grinder, a lot of sanding and refinishing and a little black spray paint but we finally finished them a couple of weeks ago. One of the things that impresses me the most is just how sturdy these little guys are built compared to most of the cheap bentwood stuff you come across these days. If they can withstand years of school kids abusing them, I'm sure they will last forever in our house.
