If you have an ancient aluminum lawn chair sitting in your garage that you've been meaning to toss away, don't do so just yet. Rachel Denbow from the blog 'A Beautiful Mess' found an amazing way for you to put it back to good use -- and with a much better aesthetic.

The Colorado Springs-based blogger recently posted a tutorial on how to decorate an old aluminum chair with tribal-inspired webbing. Using simple items like brightly colored paracord, scissors, a flathead screwdriver and a rubber band, you can transform your chair into a funky piece of outdoor furniture.

By interweaving her colored cords of choice and repeating specific patterns, she managed to create a modern design that still adheres to the iconic chair's form. It is supposed to be a timely process depending on the patterns your choose to follow, but it will be well worth it when you have a brand new chair!
