Director's chair...

Post by shadowdrawing on Tue Feb 26, 2013 5:40 pm

Hello! I'm looking to purchase a director's chair. I found one on sale and wanted to know if anyone had any experience with this one. The biggest beef on the reviews is removing the foot rest...

Any input is appreciated!

I started out with that same director's chair. I have folded over the top of a large black towel and sewn it so it slips over the back of the chair and drapes over the chair to stop little ones from falling out the back of the chair. The sewn towel also keeps my pillows from falling out of the back of the chair. The pillows keep the child pushed forward so they are closer to me.

I have a telescoping tall director's chair similar to the following:

http://www.amazon.com/Quad-Style-Aluminum-Directors-Chair/dp/B008VDRABK/ref=sr_1_46?ie=UTF8&qid=1361918982&sr=8-46&keywords=tall+director+chair

i place the removable top kit from my FatMax under the front stabilizer bar and the kit becomes a footstool for small children. I love this chair because it folds down into such a small diameter and is light, easy to carry, and can hold my 6'3" 250lb husband.

Happy Painting!

I have this one. It's got a closed back and holds 375 pounds, which is important because I live in Oklahoma. Shipping is free, so it might work out to be a better deal.

oh Jenny Nixe... I giggled when you said it holds 375 and you live in Oklahoma!

I'm Missouri, and sadly, I am not too far from that weight limit... but I love and am amused how it was a priority!

I am too, Rayebs, much to my chagrin. And, although I was joking, I have painted at events using the smaller chair and had clients not fit. I felt really bad for them, but fortunately I'm pretty tall, so it's no problem to paint standing clients.

I would advise going for the heavy duty chair an paying the extra 20$. The earth chairs are really nice and sturdy and lightweight and I think they will last for many many years. I love mine, best face paint investment I have used yet and it will hold a lot of weight. I got a steal on mine from amazon, like 65.00 and free shipping but I didn't see it on there now:(

Thank you everyone!

fesspenter - I actually had my small daughter fall through the back of a folding chair once. It was completely inappropiate for me to laugh at her but I couldn't help it! Little legs and arms sticking out of the hole with just her head. She was not happy with me. So I'm definitely thinking the chair I originally picked is out Smile The pillow idea sounds great for any chair though.

JennyNixe - I'm with Rayebs - I giggled. Very Happy I currently use a stool type hydrolic chair with no back. I use it in my craft area at my house. It doesn't fold but it is small and pretty light. The hydrolic function let me change the height by the kid. I was always worried about the kids falling off the back though. And then an adult would come along and they look like they barely fit on it. Just couldn't win with it.

eva - I'm getting ready to make my purchase and I'm eye-ing up the Earth Chairs on your recommendation!

I ordered this one...

http://www.amazon.com/Earth-Executive-Tall-Directors-Chair/dp/B0033YXVWE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361920738&sr=8-1&keywords=Tall+directors+chair

I liked the higher weight rating (even though I don't live in Oklahoma Laughing ), the silver color, and the closed seat...don't know how I will like the side table but the one without the side table was not in stock and I was hoping to use it for a PPF in March. Hoping it will not get in the way as I tend to move around the person I am painting. But maybe I can leave it off. Now I have to go home and sew a pillow Wink

That's the one I have minus the side table, I think you can lay the table down flat against the side when you aren't using it.

I got this one as well. It's great! I find it's a little hard to fold up, but I can manage.

I have the same chair and find that it can be difficult to close as well I close my eyes and hold my breath in hopes that I don't pinch any fingers or anything else thats near it. Shocked

I have gone through multiple chairs over the years and my longest lasting & absolute favorite is the ez-up. (I stretched a knit body pillow case cut open on one end over the top, & attached it to the legs w.some sewed on ties so not little ones slip through.) It even has a carry bag that I pop my sponges & folding step stool in.

If it helps, I compared it to a friends' that has one with the little side table & the weight for hers was considerably more.

The first on is only good on solid ground and for light weight adults. Otherwise it made me nervous when I went over backwards, good thing it was on grass.
I will look in to the one that goes up larger weights and more stable base.
