I found this old chair at my local goodwill. It was begging for new life. I didn’t buy it the first time I saw it , but when I went back a week later it was still there. I picked it up and brought it home, having no idea what to do with it. The poor thing was an ugly black color , the legs were loose, and the seat was in need of a redo. I tightened the legs by applying some wood glue, I painted the chair red, reupholstered the seat ( my first attempt of ever doing that) then added a black glaze. I am pretty happy with the final result. My only regret I forgot to take before pics of the chair itself, I do have one one of the old seat. Now on to the next project.
This was the old seat that really needed an upgrade
