DIY: Goovy Folding Chair of My Dreams

Remember last week I was asking you if you know where I could get those chairs (remember, on Emmas Roof Terrace in Buenos Aires)….well — while looking for something else entirely, I happened across a pattern to MAKE them — and they say it is for BEGINNER woodworkers (that’s me).  YahHoo!!

The pattern is available from  Vintage Games in Truro, Nova Scotia.  It says I only need 2×2’s – no screws or nails or glue, and it costs a measly $4.00 USD.  Now I am shopping for good wood.

Double Yah Hoo!!

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
