My favorite chair

When I started this furniture journey I never considered upholstery. 
Painting was fun. 
Learning how to fix and rebuild and sand and stain and sand some more. 
That was all great. 
recovering a few chair seats here and there was great too. Loved looking at fabric and choosing something that I thought would really update a piece. 
Loved all of it. 

Scared the living daylights out of me. 
Doing my first couch.......terrifying!

I've done a few now. 
Not as terrifying as it used to be. 

So when I spotted this chair at one of my favorite picking spots I knew it had to come home with me. 
The material was in such good shape that I seriously considered leaving it alone. 
The only thing that stopped me was my evil brain. 
You see when I see a piece like this I can never stop wondering. 
Wondering what happened on that chair. Were there leaky diapers? A dog or cat that left something that may have been cleaned off the top but maybe soaked through? 
You just never know. 
So off it came. 
 I painted the wood
 New everything

 Different material for front and back
And a "new" chair was born. 

So what do you think? Would you have left it alone?
