31  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help Me Fix My "Princess" Chair? on: February 11, 2007 05:36:42 PM
I like that idea, lilgothkat.  I don't really have access to woodcutting tools or anything like that (I live in a studio apartment in the city); would I just be able to take some dimensions (i.e., diameter) down to a woodshop or Home Depot or some such and have them cut a piece of plywood to size for me?

Thanks.

A couple years ago I bought this awesome high backed princess chair (I'm not actually sure what it's called ... I just always call it my princess chair) at an estate sale:

(Yes, that is GIR sitting on it.)

When I moved to my new apartment, I didn't have a real chair to use as a desk chair for when I'm sitting at my computer, so I had to use this one.  Unfortunately, it wasn't made for the stress of my arse slouching in it for a few hours a day, and I sat the bottom out:

I've currently stuffed the hole with a large pillow or two, but would really like to come up with a permanent, nice-looking solution.  So I come to the collective crafty mind of you ladies and gents on Craftster, asking for help.  I know the obvious solution is to just make a pillow in a trapezoidal cone shape to stick in there, but not being the sewing-crafty sort (I'm a knitter, for the most part), I have no idea how to go about that, and don't have a sewing machine to use, either (though I certainly don't mind learning ... I know where I could rent some time on one).

Any ideas?  Is this sort of damage fixable?  Or do I have to bite the bullet and just live with the fact that my chair will never be the same again?

Also, does anyone actually know what this kind of chair is called?  I feel silly just calling it a Princess Chair.

Thanks in advance!
