What drew you to the piece:

I was drawn to the curves around the top and bottom of the chair and I was impressed with what great shape the caning was in. And they are super comfy to boot! In my book, they were diamonds in the rough.

Describe any work you did to give it new life:

I put a lot of work into these puppies - sanding, painting and reupholstering them. They sealed my reupholstery addiction for sure.
