Q: I picked up this chair with great lines at the thrift store for $7. I am trying to decide how to refinish it as the worn mustard yellow chevron velvet has got to go. I would love suggestions for what color to reupholster the chair and how to stain the wood. There is no makers mark on it so it would be great if someone could identify this chair too! -Sent by Sarah

Editor: Sarah, as someone currently attempting to replace a house full of furniture on a budget, I admire and envy your lovely find. Could you perhaps pick me up a queen size bed in a similar style? Readers, how would you make the most of this chair's excellent bone structure?
