Refurbished Chair

A couple of weekends ago I took the boys to do a dump run. We were clearing about crap from around the yard, broken toys, a broken love seat. The have a section at the dump called the free store. Perfectly good things. The kids always come home with too many toys that always end up back there. While there I spotted this chair. It was sturdy and I thought I could totally redo this chair. 
So I brought it home.

Washed and sanded.

Spray painted.

Redid the seat. 
There were a lot of staple to take out, only took half and hour and my thumb was real sore after.
I found some great red burlap at the Thrift Store on Saturday and knew it was perfect for the chair.
The only problem is the back was soaked through, the board was rotten inside.
So now I have to wait until my Husband has time to cut a new board for me. He's building our shed right now.

I have tons of this red burlap now and I don't know what to do with it all.

One project I found on Pinterest. 
I am going to give it a try.
