laigrai and the floral and vinyl are gone! now if the previous owner hadn't hacked this beauty to pieces with copious unnecessary upholstery tacks - I would sand and stain. but as is, must putty and paint. #diy #bentwood #chair #thonet 5d

laigrai the great bentwood chair massacre of 2014!! // I rescued this lovely vintage thonet style chair from the despair of being covered in unfortunate clear vinyl, floral and butchered with a beyond amateur upholstery job! // underneath is solid wood! with some labor of love and wood putty and paint I'll have this beauty restored to glory! #chairlove #diy #thonet #bentwood #beautifulobjects #materialculture 5d
