Chair project

I wish I had remembered to take a "before" picture of this chair. It was stained brown but most of the finish had come off. The upholstery was so faded I couldn't tell what it had looked like. We picked it up on the side of 183 at a junk resale yard. The guy who ran the place told us it used to be in the capitol building in Austin, and I choose to believe it. I decided it needed a high gloss black coating and some cool fabric from Ikea. I love it!
