Earl. Recycled/Upcycled Ladder Back Chair with Woven Belt Seat...

I finished another vintage belt chair, yay! And even better, I listed it immediately in my Etsy shop, yay!

Meet Earl...

One of my grandmother's ladder backs, repainted tomato red and tattered rush/cane seating removed. Seat rewoven with thrifted Guatamalan, western (one "Earl") & tooled leather belts.

Up next. Thrifted heavy-duty wood rocker rewoven with ???? chunkier, tooled leather belts????

I'm linking up this (newbie to Make Share) post with Apron Thrift Girl and her Make Share fun.

Your chair is gorgeous. What a fantastic idea. I see plenty of belts around the charity shops but rarely are they real leather ones.
