tied up in knots
Give that on-its-last-legs aluminum beach chair (you know, the one with the broken webbing) a hipster refresh with colorful nylon cord. This project requires patience, but the instructions are very easy to follow. Just get zen with it, as if you were knitting…or enlist your teen to finish the job. Find the pattern and instructions at abeautifulmess.com; search for “Aluminum Chair Makeover.” Make sure to use durable nylon paracord. You can buy it in bulk in basically every color at paracordplanet.com.
