Burke and I have been finishing the basement for quite some time now (if you haven't heard). We have these two chairs that I bought last year at Christmas for my grandsons (mainly). They could use them to play video games and they even pull out so they can lay down.
I really like them. I've used them a bunch of times - even for overnight students that spend the night. Since I like them - I wanted to continue to have them in the basement, but they are hard to get off them - being so low to the ground. I kept talking about making some sort of base to raise them up.
We ended up with a pallet when we purchased our laminate materials and Burke was itching to use it. See it behind the table saw?
So he tore it all apart and created a base for the gaming chairs.
I really love it. It's very comfortable and the kids can still pull them onto the floor for overnight stays.
He even put little pads on the bottom.
I love the way it turned out. I think it still needs to be sanded down and stained. We have another chair still left to do. Gotta find another pallet!
