I got this little tub chair second hand and plopped it in the spare room. My cats have been making mince meat of it.

Any ideas on what I should do with it? I CAN'T throw anything away! Since my cats love it so much should I restuff and reupholster it using retro dyed old potato sacks? LOL.



ANY IDEAS WELCOME!!

I wouldn't throw it away either! Cool chair.

I have absolutely no talent in reupholstering. Or experience. I do have experienced with kitty clawed couches though. Smiley

If you are more experienced at sewing than me, could you make a cover for it that could be removed?

I would recomend putting a throw over it. You could make something out of sturdy upholstry fabric or buy something that would cover the entire thing. Sheets are not expensive for a temporary fix. You may also want to buy some of those nifty cardboard sratching pads and a cat deterant spray.
