My Front Curb Repurposed Inspired by El Nardo!

IMG_0233..Captain’s Chair Worn out by Number Ones Ass

El Nardo wore out yet another hand me down computer style office chair. Second in the last two years he’s lived here. I think it’s from squirming around while Youtubing and gaming. He just rubs down the back and seat covering from restless shifting. Nardo’s a big boy probably 200lbs and around 6 feet tall and 32 years old. He breaks a lot of things. He’s kind of rough on everything. Pushes and clunks and bangs shit into stuff. I hide all my valuable stuff so he doesn’t get his mitts on it. And so within 6 months of getting his ass on it, he wore out the upholstery, which was probably made in China anyway. So his mama passed down her computer chair and picked up a solid oak office chair circa 1960s. So I began to think, should I fix my computer chair, in this disposable society? It’s loaded with adjustables. In our throw-away society, even technically crafted objects are considered disposable..

Worn Out Computer Chair

I started to research. And that’s when I came up with the idea that I could go to the local serendipity and find a comfortable chair that I really like and bring it home and screw it to the base of the worn out computer chair. Sort of like Steampunk, if I get the era right. So, if you’ve paid $300 for a good hydraulic height and angle adjustments on a computer chair, have no fear, you can reupholster it if you can find the time or the craftsman to do it, or you can go find a used vintage chair in good shape that speaks to your sensibility and simply switch out the seating onto the base.

Here are some examples…
