Sometimes when you are out mining for suburban gold http://www.instructables.com/id/Mining-for-suburban-gold/ what you find isn't as nice in the daylight as you may have thought, you can either set it back at the curb, but our local recycle pickup doesn't recycle plastic chairs, or you can attempt to repair the item. On the plus side, the table I'm working on was found the same night

Step 1: materials

The back of this chair was/is split in several places and I had some rolls of "rope" from the dollar store (I'm pretty sure this stuff is made from recycled plastic)
I have a broken chair like this that has been sitting in my trash/junk pile for months now. Thank you for the idea of mending it.
Nice touch! Thanks for sharing.<br>Sunshiine
Thank you, I was surprised that not only did this simple &quot;ible&quot; get featured but it made the opening page !
Congrats! Yeah it is great to share here and getting featured adds to all the fun.<br>Sunshiine
Great chair rescue! It looks really nice too.
Thank You Chrys. I'll neaten it up some when I get the other rope but considering it was a test of an idea it did turn out looking cool.
Good idea! You could also use the rope to customize a chair that's still together. :D
Thank you Jessy ! You definitely could decorate an unbroken chair and even get artistic with a real design.
WOW, I certainly didn't expect a feature for this one !
