In the last six years, that chair has taken a beating.
I planned to reupholster it like this chair. I purchased the foam but never found fabric that satisfied me. Instead, every time I sat in the chair I silently cursed as I felt the cane breaking or the foam crumbling.
I have looked for a replacement chair. I have perused web sites. I have drooled over the $2000.00 perfect replacement. I have sat in every desk chair that I've found in Target/Ross/Marshalls/Goodwill. Nothing that was right.
Finally, yesterday a flyer came in the newspaper for World Market. A few hours later, after a bit of haggling over a very light stain, I came home with this.
I got it for 20% off. The first 10% was for the stain, the second was the coupon that was on the flyer.
It is a bit shorter than the original chair, but it is comfortable. I think I'm going to get some chair slides for the legs at the hardware store. Hopefully, that will give it a little lift and make it easier to slide under the desk when not in use.
I'm going to keep the old chair. Some day I may find the perfect fabric and finally get around to re-doing it. Until, I'm happy with my new chair.
