We'd like to think that if we spotted the faded Herman Miller chair on the left that we'd buy it with the plans to restore it. That's what Melissa and Adam did (scored the pair at a flea market for $10!). Their road to restoration after the jump.
Up-close "Before" image of the chair. Melissa said that the chairs were shedding fiberglass and they noticed the sun had bleached them from sitting outside too long.

More pics of their process on their flickr photostream.
