I started off by tracing the outline of the good leg.

Now I had to figure out how to support the gaping hole in the back. My first thought was jute webbing, but there was no place that my stapler would fit to secure the top. Instead there was a gap that I could slide a piece of wood into. Aha!
I secure the fabric with a few staples, tacked down the wood at the bottom and proceeded on.
I added some batting on top of the board and my cover fabric for the front of the chair. I then tucked both pieces of fabric under and stapled all the way around.
I had my husband cut a board for the seat and covered that as well.
Here is a photo of the back so you can see how it turned out. This chair would make such a statement at a desk, don't you think?
