For months we struggled with a thought of throwing away our beloved banana leaf chairs. Our teak table and set of six chairs were one of the first things we ever bought as a couple. We didn’t really want to scrap the chairs… Sadly the decision day has finally come, but instead of taking the chairs to the tip we ripped the banana leaf covering off from the frames. We replaced old, damaged leaf cover with wood from salvaged pallets. The reason why we had to do this was pretty simple- we have cats. We own two of these vandals and when we decided to adopt them few years back, we didn’t realise they would use the chairs as scratching posts. Over the years the condition of our beloved chairs deteriorated to the point that one of them had a massive hole in the seat and it was time to do something about it. At least we managed to recycle the frames. Have a look at our wooden pallet chairs.
