My son's sling chair

Submitted by deanna_g on Tue, 06/21/2011 - 17:07

So, my three-year-old son was super jealous that I spent some time and made my friend a sling chair for her birthday. He kept saying, "Mommy, I want you to make ME a chair!" So I did! Oh my word, was this EVER easy!!!! I super duper LOVE this chair! I bought some canvas fabric at Walmart for $2.50 a yard (clearance) and the wood (furring strips) cost me about $8. So less than $10 a chair. I couldn't be more thrilled! And he's in love with his chair, too! He wouldn't even let me take it out of the garage before trying it out....see picture of my adorable toddler in his jammies below. (-: This chair took me about 45 minutes to cut and assemble. I spray painted it white and only did one coat to give it a white washed look.
