Tie ChairApril 20th, 2010 in member junk
My dad doesn't wear ties anymore so rather than get rid of them, my mom gave them to me to weave into a chair seat. I found the chair frame at a garage sale. It was missing the seat. I painted it black, distressed, and waxed it. Then twisted the ties and wove them together to create a very tight seat. I don't always want the materials I use to be obviously what they were. Twisting the ties made them stronger and look more like rope. I loved all the color and the memories.
