I save this poor chair from the dumpster the day we moved into our new house two summers ago. My husband threaten to send it back to the dumpster if I didn't get busy and redo the chair like I promised almost two years prior. All it needed was a little bit of paint and cool fabric. I bought the fabric on sale ($6.00 per yard!!) at a sewing supply store in the DC area. I am pleased with how the chair turned out.
