Who says a CAMP CHAIR can’t~ stYle-!
This poor chair was so nARsty, it was pretty obvious why it was on the curb!
I can’t believe I actually took it ~ tOUched it! yeesch!
*Time had not made it any better pulling it from the “project pile” to work on— still so gross, which the picture does nOt show you.
**There was a mAjor amount of staples and upholstery tacks to pull– requiring extra man-handling of those nasty coverings. ~Extra YEEEsch! I wanted to don gloves, but couldn’t get a grip on anything effectively.
***It’s definitely good to have a magnetic sweep with a project like this– but I still managed to catch a few tacks in the bottom of my shoes.
After sanding the frame, I painted it a very faded “tomato-soup” red.
~I liked it with the red in the webbing.
THE WEBBING. Sure, it’s intended for structure and nOt meant to be seen— but I think it’s beautiful, and just PERfect for this job!
I created a “woven” seat and back, and sewed it together.
I do like its simplicity, and it l o o k s really cute
it just needed a little. . .“zhuzhing!”
I was bummed when I couldn’t find my really cool vintage buttons to use, but, I think it looks cute anyway! ; D
before & after
(*THIS chair–I would sit on!)
I’m sharing this project with these fABulous linly parties!
