Life circumstances had halted my ability to creatively upcycle for several years, so you can imagine my excitement when I found this old abandoned chair in my new home where I could finally unpack my tools and crafts again. The chair was very comfortable, and I had a patio that needed furniture. But how to make it pretty and unique and still functional? My creativity had been dormant for too long.
Some time later I was visiting my sister and found myself staring at her lawn chairs—ones I had seen for years. “That mesh looks just like even-weave fabric,” I thought this time. “I could cross stitch on that.” Inspiration had struck! I could hardly wait to begin my own chair.
