This is a chair I reconstructed a bit.


I got the chair for free from an estate sale since it was in pretty rough shape.
The "before"...


I ripped off the woven seat that was in horrible condition, sanded it all down and then made a paper template for a seat. I cut the seat out of a piece of 1/4 inch plywood, attached some foam from an old couch cushion, wrapped batting around it and then some zebra print faux fur. The seat isn't actually attached to the base of the chair, but it's a snug fit so it doesn't come off very easily. I painted the chair with some leftover latex paint (oil would probably be more durable, but I didn't want to buy anything new.) I made the whole thing with materials that I had leftover from other projects so it was basically free, minus my time.
