Making This Mid Century Modern Beauty Beautiful Again

I found this old Mid Century Modern beauty shop swivel chair on a FB Buy, Sell, Trade site. It was only $30 so I snapped it up. It was solid as a rock.

The vinyl had metallic flecks. It was cool, but the vinyl was really dirty and someone has spray painted the back with an obnoxious bright green color.

I ran straight to the fabric store and found a beautiful fabric. This was the most difficult upholstery job I had tackled to this point.

I removed the arms from the chairs, leaving the backrest a separate piece. I removed the seat from the legs just to make it easier to upholster.

The chrome was in really great shape. Very minimal pitting. It cleaned right up.

I love this fabric! As soon as I saw it, I knew it was perfect. I always have a stash of fabric at home, but this one was calling my name.

I have been teaching myself how to reupholster furniture. YouTube videos are great for that!

I was really happy with the way this turned out. It still has the great vintage lines, but now it has fresh padding and this gorgeous fabric. I added a tufted button on the seat back. It was in the shop less than two weeks. Boo-ya! Sold it.
