Kid’s Sling Chair

25 May

Pottery barn sells these sling chairs for around $50.  So when came up with the knock-off plans I was pretty dang excited.

The wood itself cost me about $3. Hardware $1.  The fabric I splurged a little on because it was so dang cute at $10.  And I used stain I already had on hand.  So these chairs cost me around $14 each.  And they took about 2 hours to make, and that was building them with two little girls helping out.

The sling part is double sided so you can change the look.  The fabric is held on with dowels that easily slip out to take the fabric off.

And they fold up nicely for storage.
This was totally easy project and I’ll probably be making more of these.  They would make great gifts.

Detailed plans found here.

      I got the fabric at Joann’s. It’s upholstery fabric, not outdoor fabric. I figure I just won’t leave them outside all the time.
