    550 paracord - diamond colors

    Posted by Cece on Jun 1st 2021

    Bought an aluminum folding lawn chair from an estate sale. The webbing was deteriorating. Removed the old webbing and restrung the seat and back with paracord by following the youtube video provided. It turned out beautifully! I was impressed with how great it looks. The cord was easy to use even at long lengths of several hundred feet of double stranded cord. Just keep it laid out as long as possible without piling it up (I ran it through the length of the house and back). Comb the strands with your fingers about 3 times for 4 foot lengths while weaving to prevent bunching.
