Remember the amazing Repurposed Pallet Adirondack Chair (PAC) from designer Shelton Davis? We said we'd be keeping an eye on Shelton's project. Well, we did. And the kits are now available for sale!
Davis found that it wasn't really feasible to ship the pallet parts, but folks who want to try their hands at chair making can pick up the instruction book in his Etsy shop.
He prints the illustrated instruction booklets on recycled paper using low VOC ink and packages is all up in recycled kraft paper.
The PAC project started as a way to address the lack of seating at bus stops in the Atlanta area, and now he's hoping to expand to other cities through this instruction guide.
The folks at DoTank:Brooklyn recently whipped up some of Davis' chairs and did a "chair bombing," where they dropped completed chairs at spots around the city. Check the video:
So awesome! I love the confused look that the girl gives them before settling in to one of the freshly dropped chairs with her friend. What a great way to use something headed to the landfill to improve the urban landscape!
