You may think that at $25, Lesley overpaid for this sagging, stained chair (she called it, “well-worn”), but she seemed to have an inkling that those good bones deserved a second chance.

Turns out Lesley was right — that cheerful and patterned fabric really highlights the chair’s great shape. What a vision.

Lesley says:

I waited a year for the right fabric, I finally found a lot of old Anthropologie fabric for sale on my local Craigslist (at a ridiculously good price, about $100 for 7 yards). A friend of a neighbor did an AMAZING job with the reupholstering and here I am with this beauty!

Thank you Lesley!
