Make a Woven Belt Seat



Reuse old belts for a chair makeover at @savedbyloves #repurpose #upcycle #DIY
Just as I was finishing up last week’s 50+ Ways to reuse old belts, I walked upon a scene that is a DIY, trash-obsessed, upcycling blogger’s dream.  It was 2 chairs with a “take me” sign.  Immediately the woven belt covered chairs in the collection came to mind.  I snatched up my new finds and brought them straight home.  See how I refinished the one on the left, and made it a cute woven belt seat.

SUPPLIES:

Old chair (FREE!!)
Painting or staining supplies
As I was applying the stain, I remembered why  I usually go with spray painting when I do a revamp.  Now that it is over, I am happy I refinished it.  I love the dark stain I used
Furniture tacks -You will need 2 per belt needed to cover your chair
Old Belts – I have gathered these from various thrift stores and garage sales along the way.  I used mostly leather, but there is one fabric belt thrown in there too.  I used 18 belts for this project.  That will vary with the size of your chair and the width of your belts.
Hammer
Scissors that will cut leather

I LOVE it!  It is sturdy as can be too.  The bottom is ugly, but who cares, right?

You can make this chair, no problem.  If you want to avoid the whole staining mess, just sand and spray paint your chair in a fun color.
