"new chair"

So I have never upholstered a thing in my life. I have repainted things to give them a new look though and loved it! I saw this chair at the DI for 5 bucks and could not pass up the chance to try out upholstering. The chair was disgusting to say the least when I took the bottom cushion off old ramen noodles fell all over the floor plus the whole back leg had been a snack for a dog or some kind of animal so I had to use wood filler to make it like new again. I am quite excited for the outcome and can't wait to put it in our new house when it's finished! It is a cream color with a brown antique glaze over it-- I will maybe get better pictures tomorrow when there is better light but for now enjoy.....
