My first thought when I saw the chair (without the bottom) was that I could use it outside as a flower chair. Then I spied the chair bottom in the dumpster and risked my life (JK) to get it out too. Don't you just love the detail of the legs?
I recovered the seat quickly with some toile fabric I had left from some pillows my sister made me. For the time being, a little pillow is sitting on the chair.
Eventually I might whitewash or paint the chair but for now it is happily residing in my living room just like it is.
