I’ve been wanting a new chair for our desk in the office, and this was exactly what I had been looking at. Only, I’d been lusting over them at Pottery Barn, JCPenney and other retail stores. But, now I decided I too needed to find a old-school bankers chair. It would look much better than the chair we were currently using in the office. The desk deserved better.
Thank goodness I didn’t die, because after I showed Ryan Jen’s chair, he found a similar one on Craigslist the next day. Crazy coincidence. It was actually in great shape, besides the seat. And, while I loved Jen’s refinishing, I loved not having to do it, too. Ours had a cane seat that had been busted and covered in black pleather. (I didn’t even get a photo before tearing off the pleather.)
