Chair Rescue

The Tale of a Rescued Chair

There once was a chair. It was a nice chair - beautiful wood. However, the chair wasn't pleasant to sit on and it's covering dated it terribly. Oh yeah, and it had wheels on it's front 2 legs.
You get the picture. I LOVE this chair, but it needs new padding and something other than that ugly 70s thing to cover it. Who thought that was a good idea anyways? And wheels? On the front legs only? Really?
 

And THIS was the cushion....not much for comfort were they?
 

(NOTE: I'm bad at this whole taking pictures of the entire process thing. I replaced the cushion. Forgot to take a pic of that. I touched up some scratches on the chair. Forgot to take a pic of that.)

Wow! I just love the shape and lines of this chair (they really don't design things like this anymore!) and the fabric you chose is just perfect! Great job!
