Seat Belt

I made a fun seat or luggage rack or spot for bathroom towels or..., from a camping stool and leather belts.  Thrift stores always have belts, and there is never a big rush for them so I wait until half price day to pick a few up.  Doesn't take long until you have a nice stash.  

I cut the belts to the correct size (save the extra pieces--I have some ideas for them) and screwed the belts onto the camping stool frame.  You could use a heavy duty staple gun, but mine is cruddy.  The screws were quick and easy.  I did set a heavy object on it for an hour to help the belts lay down nicely.  After taking pictures, I decided to put the weight back on overnight.

I've also seen the top half of boots wrapped around frames. Wonderful job on your camp stool ~ I like the idea of a luggage rack. Posted: 12:27 pm on April 7th
