Craigslist chair
Rob D. Brodman

After: Elegant and updated

Picking an eye-grabbing fabric for the upholstery instantly updated the piece.

To redo the chair we used: Liberon Palette Water-Based Wood Dye available from Kingdom Restorations, 800/344-9257. Citristrip stripping gel and paint stripper afterwash, 800/398-3892. Sunshine Tango upholstery fabric ($19 per yard) from Britiex Fabrics, San Francisco; 415/392-2910.

Get the full step-by step instructions for the project: I found it on Craigslist!
