Colorful and comfortable

New seat complacent? No problem! We will give the old chair and stool a new look and make it fit for the summer time.

That's what you need for the chair:

  • chair
  • Spray paint in white
  • Belt in dark blue (hardware store)
  • stapler
  • upholstery nails
  • scissors
  • Paper for the work surface

And that's how easy it is:

1. Spray the chair in white, sand if necessary and remove the dust.

2. Cut the belt according to the chair width and depth.

3. Fasten the strap longitudinally with the stapler close to the chair.

4. Weave the parts in the transverse direction through the other straps, creating a seat without gaps.

5. Firmly staple the ends to the wood.

6. Decorate the ending with the upholstery nails and cover the staple needles with it.

Tip: As an alternative to nails, rivets with hot glue can also be used.

That's what you need for the stool:

  • stool
  • Spray paint in white
  • Orange dew (sailors need, eg over ropes)
  • stapler
  • scissors

And that's how easy it is:

1. Spray stool in white, sand down if necessary and remove the dust.

2. Cut the rope according to the stool width and depth.

3. First place the rope sections lengthways over the stool and fasten them close to the seat with the tacker.

4. Weave the parts in the transverse direction through the other strands so that a seat area is created without gaps.

5. Tackle the ends as well.
