Quick and Easy Kindel Chair makeover with VINTAGE tablecloth

Good morning my Beauties..I have a quick little update to show you with a fun little story.

I picked up this Chair at Goodwill yesterday..I got it for a steal and I just loved the lines of it.

What I didn't love was the fabric. I knew this was not the original fabric as you generally don't see late 80s style upholstery fabric on this style chair...:)

So I ripped off the old fabric and grabbed one of my favorite old vintage table cloths that I used for a previous project...You can see that HERE

Here is where the fun story comes in. When I ripped off the fabric this tag fell out..
Kindel Furniture Company..(we are near Grand Rapids, so most of the furniture we get here was made right here) The fun part was the date..Oct 4 is my Birthday...NEAT.....But even better than that..Last week we said goodbye to our Friends Dad, Grandpa, and Uncle...His
name was Sam Siciliano..and he worked for Kindel furniture upholstering chairs..
His Granddaughter saw this and just knew..Her Grandpa had probably
been then one that originally worked on this chair....Funny how the world works isn't it.
It was a great memory for her!

Here it is all done..I didn't want to paint it..since the wood was in such good condition and just the history of it...It told me it needed to be left as is.
SO there we have it..A fun simple redo, that had a great little side story.
I hope you all have a BEAUTIFUL day.
