TCB (Taking Care of Business)

I procrastinate....Usually because I am afraid to fail (stupid, eh?)

6 or 7 years ago we bought 2 folding lawn chairs, you know the kind, every body had some in the 60's and 70's.

 Of course I forgot to take the REAL before picture, with all the old 

 See how worn it is in the middle.
I was afraid it would rip out every time I would sit in it.

I had bought some new webbing from Ebay quite a long time ago to 
repair the chairs, but it was sitting in a cupboard waiting for me to stop 

Well today I did!
It took me a couple of hours and guess what?

 I was scared for nothing!
It was real easy!
 Nice and sturdy!

And I have some leftover to redo the other chair!

I am so proud of myself!

It looks great! I bet that stuff would work for our Lawn furniture - we have a chouch with vinyl webbing under the cushions that is starting to stretch/sag. I also need new cushions after 4 years, they don't seem to make things like they used to. We took all the cushions in each fall but all the seams are rotting out (was a Martha Stewart set we bought when we moved here 4 years ago). Cushions alone are very expensive though, might have to buy a new set and sell this to someone with sewing skills.
