I needed a new chair for my computer desk but I wanted something that looked a little less office like. I found this chair in a charity shop (thrift shop if you're not from the UK) for 5 and decided to give upholstery a go.

I don't have any before photographs but the wood started off looking dark brown and the seat cushion was covered in dark green leather.

This is what it looks like now:

Please let me know what you think! The wood turned be oak but I've still left it untreated. I can't decide on a finish just yet. Perhaps I'll leave it natural or perhaps paint it white.

Nice job.  That's a very nice chair.  Looks like you put in alot of time on the wood. Looks very comfortable.
