I am not certain that bentwood chair inventor Michael Thonet would approve, but the wiz kids over at Evil Mad Scientist show how to mash your favourite old jeans with your favourite old chair in need of reupholstering. After all, "A broken-in pair of jeans is one of the comfiest things in the world. Unfortunately, they do eventually wear out. Luckily, they leave behind the best upholstery material: soft, comfy, durable denim. Chair seats wear out, too, especially kitchen table chairs, which can take a lot of abuse."
They say that their technique will work with pretty much any shape of chair. Learn how at ::Evil Mad Scientist
