My mom has had this chair for YEARS and I have been dying to get my hands on it! I knew I could really dress it up... and finally she gave it to me and I gave it a go!

Basically just ripped it down to the base and built it back up again!

Here is the before:




And here it is after!!


I am in LOVE with this chair! It was worth all the pain in my hands from ripping the hundreds of nails out! Wink

Whoa! What a make over.  Sure, it kills the value of the chair, but it looks amazing.

Chair really didn't have any value Wink

Thanks everyone! My mom loves it now- even joked that she should take it back!

It looks so nice. I would be scared to sit in it. Very elegant.
