Have you ever run across a chair at a thrift store, maybe a lovely old bentwood one, that had a lot of life in it — except for the busted out seat? Maybe you sighed and passed it over, thinking about the difficulty and expense of re-caning. If you've ever experienced this particular frustration, here's a beautiful, colorful, and very wallet-friendly solution. 

This DIY, from Tamara Maynes for Homelife AU, shows you how to weave a new seat for a chair using clothesline cord and Sgetti, a plastic craft string. The best part is that Sgetti comes in a huge variety of colors, so you can customize your chair to match your decor. Happy crafting!
