Not to be deterred, I posted a request for used aluminum lawn chairs on Freecycle.org. After months without a reply, a woman offered me hers. Well they looked like they were one stop away from the dump, but that didn't put me off. This is an upcycling project after all.
I hosed them down, removed the old webbing and worked away at cleaning the aluminum frame.
It was going along fine until I discovered the rivet that held the leg to the body was snapped. Project stalled.
I continued to spend time on Google searching macrame' lawn chair DIYs and videos. It just looks so cool. But if I can't find a frame to start with, it's all moot. I did discover you can buy new aluminum chair frames, but they're nearly 30.00. That sort of defeats the purpose for me. It's really about making something old, new again. I'm still intrigued by the idea, but I haven't had the heart to check out the second frame yet.
