Upcycle Old Jeans into a Chair

On: Monday, June 25, 2012

What a clever idea and nice implementation: this chair looks cool and seems to be very comfortable.

It used several pairs of jeans, I guess, because the scraps are in different colors.

When I stumbled upon this cool Hello Kitty chair on Flickr, I thought "Would she love that chair?" What are your thoughts?
