Sorry I don't have a before shot, but just imagine an old rough chair with an orange vinyl seat. Yuchh!! I sanded it and applied 4 coats of paint. I painted the lower rungs in gold and also the hand-drawn little men on the back. I then reupholstered the seat with fabric I had left from my bed quilt project (picture included) and put it all together. It fits into our bedroom just perfectly and makes a good extra chair for company.
