Recovered Chair

This is a late mid century wooden chair that was in the basement of my building waiting for someone to throw it away!

Well, I have decided to rescue it from a sad end and bring it back to life!

I feel sorry I haven't taken before and after photos, but when I got it, it was completely weared out. The wood in the legs was all stained with water marks and in the seat was all chipped.
I cleaned it out, sanded it and realized that although the wood was in great shape, the marks would never come out. Therefore I decided to paint it giving it a distressed look and upholster the seat and back.
Both, seat and back have a layer of foam and dracon under the fabric. The fabric used it's original from the late 60's early 70's.

This is one of my favorite pieces ever.
