To me, the beach chair we’re featuring today, says ‘vacation’, ‘relaxation’, ‘joy’, and ‘fresh air’ besides shouting ‘BEACHHHH!!!’
And so, NOW is the time, to be brave and go to the lumberman (or your own shed), pick up some wood and make one!
OK, girls n guys, let’s get handy with tools… We are in urgent need of beach chairs and deck chairs, so I’m featuring a rather easy beach chair DIY tutorial today, and next week Friday, a tutorial how to make an Adirondack chair (*) or love seat, all out of wood.
I would classify both these chairs more intermediate level DIY PROJECTS, however, sometimes it’s merely a matter of just beginning…
Just started considering that
would be able to make a chair.
What a thought is that!
Your own beach chair ?!
Imagine how satisfied you’ll sit in it
knowing that you made it?!
Today’s Beach Chair Howto
Calling this a ‘how to’, I mean not to merely re-line a beach chair with a piece of new fabric and put then to it on the deck. No. I mean making our own comfy beach chairs from start to finish, including the wooden beams!
Now I’m lucky enough to have and today, to share with you, the complete step-by-step chair making instruction on how to make both an adult and child version of this chair.
1. Hit the lumber yard for wood, etc, but
2. Buy fabric online here: Outdoor Furniture Fabric. There are many choices, be sure to check out that Tommy Bahama fabric and the Indoor/Outdoor Fabric by Better Homes & Gardens (see photo).
