Tips for Vintage Chair Redo?

Good Questions

Q: I found this chair sitting right in front of my house. The fabric is old and ripped, I do love the wood and the shape of the chair. I've always wanted to try to redo a chair, but I haven't been able to find a really detailed DIY on how to do it — even though I know there must be plenty out there! Can you guys tell me how I know if the chair is ok enough to even try, and what to pay attention to? Thank you!!
