Mid Century Chair Refurbish

Another great sidewalk find as I was walking up to yoga a couple of weeks ago, was this mid century dining room chair.

I would have loved to have gotten the whole set as well as the table it went with but I'm happy to acquire just the one chair for free.

It was obvious the main issue with this chair was it needed the seat reupholstered.  The wood was fine, however, in my mind I had an image of what I wanted this chair to look like.

This is what my mind told me it should look like.

I had some left over burlap from a bench makeover I did so I used it on the seat.

The wood, although nice, I painted with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint (Shutter Gray) I believe this color of milk paint is my favorite.

I love how the paint chipped naturally.

This spot chipped a little more than any where else.  I think it looks good though.  If a piece of furniture wants to shed paint, I've learned to just let it.

One last shot from the back.  Not bad for another sidewalk find!
