Our new chairs were ruining the walls behind them. We have a very small eating area and it was inevitable that the chairs would hit the walls no matter how careful we were. Since it is such a small and awkward area we knew it would take some effort and expense to actually put up nice matching wood chair rails so we needed something else that would work almost as good in the mean time. Hence my crochet chair rail alternative!
It is simply a crochet piece that is sewn directly onto the upper part of the chair back. Of course this won't work for all chairs, there has to be a way to secure it. For my chairs pictured I simply used the same yarn with a needle and sewed them right onto the chair. Super simple and they are working out great! Goal of protecting walls achieved :-)
Super simple and serves it's purpose well.
I also really like the way they look!

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
