I have been wanting to fix my sewing room chair for a while now. It would slowly get lower and lower until I had to stand up and pull the handle to raise it. Jeff said to order a new one but I wanted to try something first.
I went out to the shed and got a piece of big pvc pipe. I cut it ten inches long and washed it up. Then I took the bottom part off the chair and slipped the pvc pipe over the post of the chair. I replaced the bottom of the chair, taped the little piece that holds it on and flipped it over.
I think it will work. I wont be able to lower the chair but that is okay. I always had to make the chair higher for my long legs.
I'm happy that I fixed the chair in about 15 minutes using stuff we had around the place and saved who knows how much on a new chair.
That is my frugal fix for today and I'm hoping it works because I'm pretty proud of myself.
