chairq072710.jpg Q: I found this old chair out by the trash today and was wondering if it was worth the trouble of restoring it given that front two legs and one of the back are missing. The front two legs look as if they could be screw in but the back look like they might be extensions of the frame. If the back legs are indeed extensions of the spine on either side of the chair then how integral to the structural integrity are they?

Also do you think I need to gut the chair and replace the padding? (I pulled off the seam of the side panel and I can't see any rot)

Can a DIY'er do it or is this a lost cause? Any resources for further instructions on how to go about this task would be greatly appreciated.
