The DIY Paulistano post on Remodelista was a good copycat, but still out of reach for me.  I too, have always LOVED the look of these chairs…but $700 for the frame alone isn’t going to cut it…even if I use a $23 dollar dropcloth to finish it.

One of the commenters had a GREAT idea to make it a complete DIY…..using rebar to make your own frame.  Cool eh?  The texture of the rebar could make it very interesting with an industrial vibe…I likey.
