This initiative proves that no junk is 100 percent useless. Due to the innovation and creativity of one person as pointed out by Wellness Grit Website, this chair was made with less than $12. After going through this write up, you will definitely be a little more careful before you discard junks around you.

One of the old chairs from a grounded car was used for this. It was found that the mechanism of the chair had become stiff. It was no longer moving. Even its handle had snapped off. It was tempting to quickly discard it but no, there was another plan for it. Needless to say it was free. Who could have paid for it anyway?

After taking the chair home, the next step was to free its mechanism. But not before soaking it with good anti-rust spray. All the foam and leather were also removed completely. The stripping took quite some time. In fact, it took several hours to get the stripping completely done. Precisely, it took about 5 hours but it may take you less time depending on your skills and the tools you are using.

Afterwards, the back of the chair was rebuilt and so was the seat base. Then the footrest and the arms were built. As the final step, the whole chair was polished. The end product is what this guy calls La-Z-boy chair. So, you can go through it carefully and share it immediately after.
