I’m also a big fan of creative design ideas that keep us from getting too set in our ways and falling into the “that’s the way we always do it” trap.
Easy DIY project
This looks to be a pretty straightforward DIY project that would work for a variety of chair styles. The main criteria would be to use sturdy wooden chairs with square seat and/or back frames.
If you’re anything like me, you may have a collection of old belts cluttering up your closet to get you started. All kinds of belts are easy to find at thrift stores and discount outlets for a reasonable price.
Belts that run front to back are woven through the stretched belts and stapled the same way.
You can find the 7 step by step instructions for this project below the video player on the Buildipedia site.
I’m thinking a set of “belted” dining room chairs would look fantastic.
