 I found a papsan chair frame in the garbage yesterday, and my roomates have given me a deadling to do something with it before it returns to its death, so if anyone has any ideas, please share. If you are unsure what a papasan chair is:

Thats exactly it, but without the cushin.

Line it with chicken wire and that moss you rehydrate (home depot/lowes/craft stores), add some potting soil and plants.  You'll have a cool planter for your porch/balcony.

Something like this:

Search "chair planter" for simple directions.

Now I want one, thanks. Wink

That is a totally awesome idea too! I definitely second this.

How big is the frame? I'm having a similar problem in that my boyfriend got a GIANT bed-sized papasan that needs its cushion replaced, but no one sells cushions big enough.

Maybe you can make a new cushion for it? At my local Ikea they sell a circular mattress, and I'm pretty sure they sell the sheets for them too, so I'm thinking of getting a couple circular fitted sheets and making my own cushion. I'm sure regular sheets or fabric would work too, but the circular sheet idea sticks in my head for some reason.

Or, you could fill it up with throw pillows and use that in lieu of a regular cushion.

if you don't want to make a cushion for it. Spare pillows and blankets work well in it. That is what is in mine before it became the catch all of everything.

Hang it on the fence and use it for a trellis to grow some pretty vines!
