10min JEFF Chair Refurb

Ikea Hack-781591


Materials: 1xJEFF Chair and 1m of 75-80mm PVC Pipe

Description: Find some discarded folding chairs, this hack should work for any IKEA folding chair. People will most likely be throwing them out because the plastic chair back has cracked.
It’s also easy to find offcuts of pvc around residential building sites!

- Pull off the broken chair back, and throw in recycling.

- Cut lengths PVC pipe to desired length using a hacksaw.

- I used a Dremel multi-max to cut square holes the correct width apart for the metal supports.

Total Cost = $0
Time Taken = 10min
