We found an old office chair at a secondhand store. After cleaning it up, we removed the legs and added pads to the bottom so the chair would sit on the floor. Then we made a machine-washable slipcover and personalized it with the owner's name. This project required no power tools and cost very little money.
1 recycled office chair with arms
1 old felt-like blanket
felt for letters
To make the chair stable and to protect your floor, add furniture pads to the bottom of the chair. If they are not self-adhesive, attach them with hot glue. Place larger pads at four corners and the four smaller ones (two on top of each other) toward the front to prevent the chair from tilting.
