Macrame Patio Chairs

They started like this … wicker chairs gifted by a neighbor moving out of the hood. We used them for a few years in the greenhouse, until they got an infestation of little beetles. Then it was out into the yard in the rain and the snow. The beetles left. The wicker deteriorated. But … the steel frames remained true.

Ah, what to do?

A lot of rope + a lot of experimentation + a lot of square knots + a lot of time = 2 comfortable patio chairs

John stripped the wicker and spray painted the steel.

I took a trip to Two Rivers Bookstore and Weird Sisters Yarn Shop and came away with 3 spools of Modern Macrame cotton rope to create these lovely chairs! After summer they will be going back into the greenhouse.
