Let's go - step by step
You need: pencil, wooden chair, wooden slat
First, use a pencil and a wooden slat to mark up a line on the chair for sawing. Try to ensure that it is as straight as possible.
Sawing the chair to size
You need: Cordless circular saw
Secure the chair with screw clamps and use a cordless circular saw to cut along the marked edge. Make sure to set the desired cutting depth needed and position the saw on the outer edge. If the height of the seat exceeds the maximum cutting depth of the cordless circular saw, the surface has to be sawn through all the way around on three sides. Lastly, saw the wooden slat which will later be used as the wall holder so that it matches the chair width.
Sanding down the chair
You need: Sanders
Use a sanding roller to sand down the sawn edges until they are smooth and sleek.
Mounting the chair to the wall
You need: wall plugs, screws
Start by fixing the wooden slat to the wall using the wall plugs and screws. Then place the chair on the slat. Depending on the shape of the chair, you can now screw the side edges of the seat to the slat on the left and right or, if there are no side edges, fix the seat to the wooden slat directly from above. Your chair wardobe is now complete.
