I found this chair at Goodwill and thought...god that is awful and itchy... and then the light came on and I thought it would make a great chair for the craftster challenge. The first Challenge I did (the light) turned out horrible, so I felt I must redeem myself and I think I have at least improved.

I painted, recovered, added height to the back piece, a pocket on the backside and added a custom footstool that pulls out.

Hope you enjoy this unique piece. Tell me what you think. I would love any feedback.
