When I bought the chair (for $35.00) the seller told me she paid $100.00, 50 years ago in an antique shop.
It had a few layers of old chippy paint on it so I thought I would embrace that by giving it a country feel. In order to accomplish my desired country captains chair, I distressed this little beauty tons.
I just love how it turned out! After I finished painting, curiosity got the best of me and I decided to search online for this style of chair. I found a few very similar looking ones which sold online for a lot more than I paid!
