A Green MCM Chair – Deconstructed

Awhile back I found a pair of olive green, classic, mid century modern arm chairs at my local thrift shop.  The cushions were well worn but the structure was still really solid.  I love refurbishing vintage furniture yet I was a little hesitant to start this project.  I am still very new ‘student’ in the… Continue reading A Green MCM Chair – Deconstructed
