Something that can completely transform a piece of furniture is some new fabric. I found this classic design icon at the Brimfield Antique fair a couple years ago. The ancient icky colored leather hid how awesome this chair really was. Luckily, mid-century furniture is often the easiest to reupholster because it was built with longevity and ease of assembly in mind. The only part of this project that required a sewing machine was the arms, the rest was done with some sweat and a good old staple gun. With a light sanding and a fresh coat of stain, it was ready to go!
