C/ Alphabe-Thursday

 CHAIR made of skis

This week's Alphabe-Thursday challenge: C

Here's an idea for recycling skis, which I think is rather clever. Have you ever seen this style of chair before?

A second CHAIR made of skis

Sandra said...

Andy said...

What a coincidence! I just photographed a similar chair made from hockey sticks.

Pretty clever and also a good idea. MB

Malyss said...

A great idea in those times where we all need to be careful with money!Did you sit there? are they comfortable?..

Gillian Olson said...

I have never seen this before, but it seems like a good way to recycle old skis.

Clever Canadian Chair on C day.

Paulie said...

A great day for me to stop in to visit! Love those ski "benches." The ones I have seen are shortened tho. . . guess they cut the skis in half to make a longer bench?

cieldequimper said...

Those are great (but don't ever ask me to get onto skis! I prefer bobsleighing!)

Lowell said...

Oh, I really like these! Very creative and colorful!

Never seen a chair like this but you know how much I like repurposed things.

They would be for royalty...at least that was my first thought when I saw what it was.

Pam said...

If the chair had skies on the bottom I just might try sliding down a slippery slope.
I love the rainbow of colors.

Hugs,
Pam

Those are great chairs. Around me, that would be the safest use of skis!

Ah we'll be needing these soon! We won't have our first snow this year until this weekend, but at the Buck Hill not far from my house they are already busy making snow!

Karen said...

We have 2 chairs like that at the cottage! Love 'em.

Sandy said...

This is something I've never seen before,, guess it's because I don't ski... did you make them?
