How to DIY a washing machine into a chair

You may have seen projects that turn the perforated barrel of a washing machine or dryer into a bonfire pit. But how about chairs to go around that bonfire? In his project "I Used to be a Washing Machine" designer Tony Grigorian uses the old appliance to create one, or several, new pieces of furniture.

Not a bad plan! And even some starter instructions are provided. Just a few planning steps, strategic cuts, some parts for piecing bits back together, and of course some foam.
