Designer Shelly Leer loved an Anthropologie sling chair, but not its $268 price tag. Instead, she created her own version for about $30. Impressive.
seems to be the place where dreams are made...then quickly die with a reveal of a price tag. Shelly Leer felt that pang of wallet envy when she came upon a not-so-typical beach chair sold by the retailer of all things pretty for a cool $268.
The chair in question had a canvas sling emblazoned with a bold, colorful pattern. Since the main selling point of the chair was the fancy sling, Shelly decided to try her hand at crafting her own seat. Starting with a $20 chair frame, she created a sling from remnant fabric. That was the easy part. The hardest part was actually removing the original sling, which was anchored to the frame with staples. Pliers are your friend. To see the full tutorial, visit ModHomeEc
