Six Old Lawn Chairs Recycled To Make Nifty Overhead Lumber Storage
Raymond Pixley, Mt. Carmel, Ill.: "I recycled six old lawn chairs to make nifty overhead lumber storage. The idea eliminated the need to buy commercial hangars.
"What we did was to remove the rivets from the chairs, discarding the back and arm rests and saving the legs. Then we used dry wall screws to secure the U-shaped legs to the floor joists. You need to make sure they're level or the wood will warp.
"This let us get the lumber up off the floor but it's still easy to get at it. I liked finding a way to use the old chairs rather than just throwing them away."
