Anyone who has chairs that were not sold with pads for the legs knows how important it is to have them. Anything to avoid the screeching, scratching and damage that occurs when they are left bare boned. As with most things, some companies take ordinary objects to a whole new place and we're left to ponder if we are right there with them.
We're going to come right out and say it &mdash these Chair Personality Socks aren't for everyone. When we first saw them we were laughing and it wasn't until a later look that we realized how great of an idea they are/can be. CharlesandMarie is selling a set of four for $20 &mdash but we thought these socks would make a great DIY project!
Instead of spending the $20 for new socks, why not use some of the older socks you have in your drawer? We happen to take great pride in what our sock drawer has to offer and could really imagine a few of them on the legs of our kitchen chairs.
All you need:
&bull Socks you already own
&bull Needle and Thread (or sewing machine)
&bull Measuring tool
Between measuring the circumference of the chair legs and a little cutting and stitching of the recycled socks, you'll have chair socks in no time.
We love that with this DIY you can fully customize the socks. Any height, color or pattern you like &mdash instead of having to purchase socks that you may not be completely thrilled with.
