So I found this lovely bamboo chair someone was throwing out.  It was structurally sounds & otherwise in good condition, but the seat was ugly & had some water damage.  I took apart the old seat, gave it a new foam pad, two layers of batting, & some lovely fabric.  I also painted the frame.  I love the way it looks now, but I have discovered it is painful to sit in for more than 5mins.  It was intended to be my desk chair, which I am very much in need of. Sad

I have considered replacing the plywood bottom with webbing, but there isn't anywhere around here that sells it.  Plus, I really don't have any more money to spend on it now.  I have read of people using duct tape to fix those strappy lawn chairs.  Anyone have any experience with that?  Think it might be a good idea?  I have white duct tape, so it wouldn't be too hideous if it showed.

Here's the chair as it is now.  The seat pad is held in by L-brackets.
