Front and back view of the finished chair. Thrifted for $3.
One of the back legs needed repair. A triangular 3"-4" piece had broken off the leg. I formed and attached a patch, primed and painted it to match the paint. I rearranged the padding under the existing upholstery and then covered the backside (which was not finished) with some drapery fabric we had on hand.
My wife calls it "shabby chic".
I call it her birthday present!
