My husband brought this beautiful chair into our marriage. It was in need of some serious love. My mother and I jumped in and took on the challenge with the help of anyone who was willing to pull a staple or two. Life intervened and it sat, unfinished for months on end. Recently my ailing grandmother decided that she had seen that unfinished project sitting around for too long. She decided she would have it re-upholstered for us, so that when she passes away I would have it in our home as something to remember her by. My dad has refinished the wood work on it, so his love is wrapped up in there too. I will cherish this chair for the rest of my life and hope to one day pass it on to my child so that the love they've contributed will be passed on to future generations.
