Can this chair be saved?????  Rarely do I find a chair that can’t be helped out and given a new lease on life…

WOW!  Look at it now!  I decided to change the inside back from channels to tufts and the decorative nails to a pretty double welt made from the same linen/cotton fabric.  Since the wood was a little bit worn and dinged-up, I painted it a gray/green with a polyurethane finish.

What do you think?

    I’ve often wondered if it is better to find a older well built piece to have redone, or to take a chance on some of the new furniture out there that might not be built quite as well…

    How does someone recognize a piece with potential?
