oh wow, that looks really good!  It's amazing how some re-upholstering can make something that looks like dorm furniture into a stylish piece!

Must have been an old 70's or 80's waiting room chair. Good for you in rescuing it from the dumpster and turning it into a very cool looking retro chair!

Hah, the before pics look like the chairs that we had in the dentist office that I used to work at!

Nice transformation! The chair really does have some interesting lines with the armrests painted black. Good Job!

That looks great!  I've been wanting to find a chair like this to recover.  I'm inspired again.

Good job!!  Re-upholstering is hard and you made this look great.  I didn't even notice the difference in fabric colors until you mentioned it.   Shocked

It looks 100% better after you were finished with it. I love the pink and white fabric with black contrast.
