Finally A Chair

I mentioned once how I found this guy for $3 here and showed you some of my progress.

Did I show you this seal that leads me to believe my chair to have been born sometime between 1857 - 1957.

I had given up for a while on her because when she was finished I put some varnish on... it was old varnish... and it ruined the stain on the seat.  I had to start over.  I had to re-sand and stain the entire seat- which is not hard, but takes days of drying and re staining.  There was one point when I was not sure the $3 chair deserved all the work I was putting into restoring it.   But I am glad I came back to the project and finished her.  Next up.... the desk to match.
