a single tyrant ensconced on her throne

Remember the necklace thing I made, here? Well, when I purchased the burlap coffee sack I used for that project, I actually bought a second one for another task I had planned.

Early in the summer, I snatched up a wooden director’s chair frame I saw sitting by a dumpster just up the block. I stuck it in my closet, thinking I wanted to paint it before making a new seat and back. At some point I changed my mind, and yesterday I finally got around to dragging it out.

Can’t sit on that. Yet.

I spent most of yesterday measuring, cutting, gluing,  sewing, more gluing, and hammering. Fortunately I had Law & Order: SVU to keep me entertained.

I have more hammering to do today. Upholstery tacks, y’know. They are tedious. I think I’m going to need to reinforce the seat more before I trust that I could sit on it without falling through. I don’t have enough faith in the strength of those tacks alone. there’s also some concern regarding the strength of the burlap, I guess, but whatever. The cats can use it, and that’s good enough for me.

Mmm, rustic.

Buck was snoozing on it last night, too.

Lucy approves.
