Thrift Store Chair: Before and After

Before:
Bad Stain Job:
After:

 I found this chair at Goodwill (for $5!) and fell in love with the lines.  It's got some great details in the legs and I love the bow-tie back.  I envisioned refinishing it with a dark chocolate brown stain and this yellow fabric, but for some reason the stain did not take evenly and it turned out really red.  So, I opted for plan b-- an antique white satin paint.  I'm not crazy about the yellow fabric with the white paint, but for now it will do.  Plus, I am always looking for an excuse to shop for fabric. :)
