Roaring 20's Chair Makeover

I picked up this little chair from the Gdub last summer and it looked cute, but just so sad.
It has the original manufacturer's tag still attached underneath dated 1926. 


Strangely enough, this Aztec looking cover was the second cover.  I don't dare show you the one underneath-it was scary.  I happily removed all of it (yuk!)  I gave her a gentle sanding, a coat of primer, and finished with a coat of enamel.  Then I used a new foam cushion, cut it to fit, and covered it with a nice toile fabric using a staple gun.  Voila.


Isn't she pretty?  I am sure she will find a good home.
I proudly donated her yesterday to my local habitat for humanity.  :)
