I rescued my first piece of hard rubbish yesterday. It looked expensive so I was really surprised to discover it was from ikea and costs less than $30. It's called a Vargo chair and was designed by Swedish architect Thomas Sandell, who has designed quite a few nice (and expensive) furniture pieces for other manufacturers.
I must admit, when I found out the chiar was from ikea, I was tempted tosimply toss mine back out onto the curb and buy a new one...but I've changed my mind. I've decided to turn the chair into my very own DYI project and spray paint it for my balcony.
