This little gem has been in our garage since I picked it up last August.
Don't judge, it was going to be my practice piece and blue velvet disgusting-ness and
everything underneath was getting trashed.
a broken spring that was not worth repairing.

This is how I imagined the little gem all finished... :(
Not to worry I have plenty more projects, I quickly switched gears and was ready
to re-upholster the dining room chairs. I had decided to keep two of these side chairs to use at the ends, the arm chairs never fit well because of the apron on table. I'm planning to get rid of
the channeling on the back and the rolled top.
I love the look of using two coordinating fabrics in the mix some way, so that will be part of
the plan, so let's get moving...
I have the bottom fabric off, and interior is in excellent condition, so I'm planning to re-use it.
I enlisted the help of mr. simple after I'd been removing staples for an hour and a half.
After 20 minutes of this...
I replied, "Because I have a diy blog!"
"But I'm sure they wouldn't be too disappointed!" :)
I was still anxious to get to the 'roll' and see what we had to work with.
I'm thinking they can cut the back half of the rounded portion off.
Any other ideas?? If it were removed all together the height of the chair would be
about 39" vs 41" if we left it intact.
