Can I Save this Found Rocking Chair?

Good Questions

Q: I found this old looking rocking chair on the side of a street with a "free" sign on it. It looked so incredible I couldn't pass it by, but when I got it home and took a look at it, I was semi-overwhelmed. I really don't want to lose the integrity of the piece, but the whole seat area is unusable. I'd love if someone could point me in the right direction with tips on the best way I could refurbish it without making it look tacky. Thanks!
