The chair is finished!
So..... you may remember I posted this picture a while ago. I just fell in love with it, it's kinda a chia chair, right?? Well I was at the local thrift store and just happened to find a chair that I thought would work out just fine for this project.
100, 1000, 1 million staples and gave her a fresh new coat of hot pink paint. I also added some screening, I actually think this stuff is called hardware cloth, you find it at Loew's or Home Depot out in the garden area. It cost about 8.00 I think. Anyway I stapled it all over the place and made a little pocket on the part where your back goes on a chair. I just used wire to kinda sew it together, ouch! (kept poking myself) You may have noticed there are parts of the original chair that I left thinking this would help me with my master plan. Well we had some rainy days and hot days and life got busy, so this thing just sat. Yesterday I said I have to get my chair finished and so I began on it this morning. I took one look at it and said, my original plan is not going to work! (Actually I said, what the hec was I thinking... literally, don't remember what the plan was. You young ladies will have your day, just you wait!) Time for plan B!!!!!
