because i like projects

i convinced mike that we should by this chair from craigslist for $10 in the hopes that i could rehab it into fabulousness.
at first, being the natural wood kind of girl that i am, i originally thought i would just refinish it and maybe have the seat re-caned (or whatever), but now i'm thinking white paint and a bold, graphic-print fabric seat (see inspiration here, here, and here). i mean, it's not what i would typically do, but sometimes something different can be fun and liberating and whatnot, right?

what would you do?

paint and fabric! but if it were a seat i was covering, i'd have to have fabric that would wipe clean easily because oscar is the messiest boy in the entire universe...

That chair place we went to in chagrin falls did a nice job of redoing the chair from granny's desk that chris and angie have. I also have info on doing that kind of seat if you wanted to keep it as it was designed.
