hard rubbish

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.

Looks a bit low for your long legs, AdRad!

It's surprisingly comfortable...plenty of balcony space to stretch my legs!
