I picked up this chair at Value Village for $9.99.... You'll see the finished upholstery soon. I chose linen for the fabric. I still have to put the back on it.... the only part that requires sewing...grrr.
Here it is torn down. It had really great hand-tied springs in good condition. I sat on it just like this, with no upholstery and it was still comfortable. That's my test for a good design. It was stuffed with cotton and straw rather than horsehair. I think that's fairly common. I had to keep the vacuum on hand and tear off the seat on the porch because of the straw bits.
