Belt Art by Crazy Belt Lady

If you’re looking for a statement piece for your home or office, look no further than Belt Art designs by Crazy Belt Lady.

Crazy Belt Lady (a.k.a. Leslie) takes existing chairs and stools and remakes the seat using ReCycled-Rescued-RePurposed belts.  You’d never know that in a past chapter of her life, Leslie was a stock broker.  After being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, she left her high-stress career and imagined a new life.  The belt art began as a creative woven border for a bathroom, and later became the showpieces for Leslie’s wall hangings, chairs and stools.

People also come to Leslie with belts from deceased loved ones, and ask her to make a memory piece.  She can do so by incorporating just a few belts, and this is a great way to give multiple family members a memorable and usable work of art.

Each Belt Art piece is handcrafted in Lexington, Kentucky and available for shipping anywhere.  They are stain and water protected, guaranteed for one year and will not sag.  They can be made as a matching set and with requested colors.

Leslie and I are friends, but I have not received compensation or trade for my review, and I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t withhold her friendship for my honest opinion.
