Produced by Stephen CampbellWritten by Ann Wilson
Tribal looks with hand-knotted appeal are ultra-hip. Tap into your wild side and punch up a plain seat with tactile shapes formed from 3/16-inch-thick bungee cord cut into 35-inch lengths.
Fold each cord in half, loop it around a slat, pull both ends through loop and knot dangling ends. Continue adding cords, alternating colors, until you create a square.
Place additional squares to create a checkerboard pattern.
