This instructable is really just a great idea to recycle something that would otherwise go into a landfill.
I ask that you read this, because in no way do I condone the use of an out of date car seat for use in a car. This instructable uses an out of date car seat, so please don't comment about the use of an out of date car seat in a car - and how wrong it is to use in a car- without understanding what I am doing by reading the instructable !
I had no idea that car seats for babies have an expiration date. This makes them useless (and illegal to use in the car) once this date is past.
I can only imagine how many of these are tossed into a landfill every year.
With this instructable, you can turn that useless car seat into a nice lightweight house lounge chair for you baby !
Step 1: The beginning
I was lugging my newborn around the house in his hefty car seat while doing cleaning, dishes, etc. This was working, and I was able to keep an eye on the baby at all times, but the car seat is large and weighs a ton.
I got to thinking about the expiration date on car seats, and how they are just tossed into the dumpster when I got the idea for this instructable.
Take an out of date car seat and make it into a house lounger for your baby !
