Turn a Dining Chair into a Chaise Lounge

Turn a Dining Chair into a Chaise Lounge

I have never felt the need for a chaise lounge in my home. Until now, that is. I think it's because this chair-turned-chaise is such a cleverly weird idea. And who doesn't love finding new ways to use thrift store finds? To give this project a go ourselves, we'll need some stuff. Here it is:

  • a dining room chair
  • pry bar
  • hammer
  • paint
  • 2 chair legs, the same height as your dining chair's
  • 4- 1"x3" wood strips
  • plywood
  • foam
  • batting
  • fabric
  • staple gun
  • scissors
  • L brackets
  • screwdriver & screws

you know the term is actually "chaise longue"... chaise lounge doesn't make any sense.
