Picture:


I got this awesome 4 chair, table and umbrella stand set today for $40. The rust and weathering isn't that bad, and all the important parts are strong. The chairs even rock! It wont take much to get it looking great, just a bit of elbow grease. I will be doing all the metal parts in black.

My problem is that the chairs used to have a plastic panel on the back piece, but they disintegrated and the former owner removed them. I am unsure what to do to replace the backs. The set is going to be used on my covered outdoor patio. I live in Texas so heat, bugs, dogs, kids and weather are considerations.

Help me, Craftster, you're my only hope!  Grin

A simply woven back might work, you could use webbing or any sort of string, even ribbon I suppose, but that may well be a bit fragile. A combination could work too, e.g. warp in webbing and weft in string.

A canvas panel with eyelets, smaller than the original so it could be laced in would probably work too, that way you could take it out and wash it if necessary or change the design easily.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
