As you can see, this chair doesn't come without problems. The top of the back is broken off and it is a little tricky to fix it.
I drilled some holes to glue a dowel into. If you look closely you can see that this is how the chair was originally held together. This is the tricky part. You have to drill the holes into the top piece at the right spot and right angle for it to fit properly. Well, I didn't do it perfect, but came pretty close.
I filled any gaps with wood filler
then lightly sanded and began painting.
What would go with the pretty blue desk?
White on white always works.
I added some gold accents on the chair to tie into the desk.
Here is a close up shot. You can't really even tell it was broken, can you?
I am so glad I found this chair, because I love it!
