In the HOT seat...September 21st, 2009 in member junk
Gadora found a neglected and disgarded chair on the side of the road. Whipping the car around, I knew it could be transformed into something fab! Collecting mens ties since spotting an inspiration chair in New Orleans, I got busy weaving the ties together, fastenting them so I could stitch together... and making a new seat. The chair was sanded, applied with a few coats of paints then sealed. From start to finish, the chair (and seat) took about 5 hours to complete and cost only $8 for the ties.
For ALL the pictures and the story on HOW-TO, check out "No EASY Chair" on my blog. Was orginally thinking of selling it, but I'm now sure it's a keeper. What do you think?
