This chair was spotted in the free section on Craigslist, and listed as the "Attack Cat Chair." Apparently, the owner couldn't bear junking it, and Cat (yep, that's her name too) was happy to take it on as a project.
Cat used discounted remnants to reupholster the 1961 chair. It was more complicated to work on than she expected (especially when it came to the tufted back and buttons) but she made it through!
Kudos Cat on a job well done...
