You know you can use vinegar for all kinds of house hold projects but did you know that you can also use it to make glue? I found the recipe on line when I used it to cover the first chair. This project is actually the second time that I have used the technique. I covered the first chair last June and it is holding up very well so it was time to finish the second chair. As you can see the cats had done quite a number on it.
The process may sound a little crazy but I decided to cover the chairs with twine because I wanted them to be durable and hold up to the cats clawing without snagging or ripping.
It is a simple process but does take some time. The short video below show one section of the chair being covered.
Once the chair is completely covered and dried it does require a lot of sanding.
I also added a coat of polycrylic to seal the project.
You can find more information on the process here.Here is a shot of the two completed chairs.
They seem to be cat approved :-)
