I ran by UW surplus today and found this guy for $15
Great! I figure this will be a perfect place to start.
Problem... I couldn't get the darned thing in my car. My car door frame was just too frickin' small! I had 8 different people walk by and tell me what a great chair I had as I was trying to shove the piece at different angles into my vehicle. All I kept thinking was that I was going to have to leave this 'great chair' on the street if I couldn't figure out a way to get it home!
Finally, I decided to bungee it into my trunk. Of course, I never added more bungees to my car, so I only have one old bungee! Luckily, I have my dog's car hammock which has loops that go over my car's head rests. I connected three of these loops to each other and used these as another strap to hold the chair in my trunk. As I was re-jiggering everything, it started raining. of course. Sigh!
I spent the whole car ride home worrying that the old bungee I had was going to snap and I would cause a crazy traffic jam over a $15 chair. blargh. Hopefully, this will be a fun project. I hope it's worth it!
