First I pulled off the ugly pink vinyl fabric. Underneath it was more pink. This time a pink velour type fabric, which I am assuming to be the original. I also found some labels.
From what little I could find online. My piece is a reproduction piece from the mid 1950's. It hails from Michigan (like most of my family!).
I don't know what this label is from. Maybe the people who ordered it? Reupholstered it? Anyway, I'm guessing this chair was in Illinois at some point in it's life. I couldn't seem to find an information on the name.
I purchased my very first "power tool" and got to work. I didn't want to deal with taking the original fabric off and replacing the pad, since both were in great condition... and I wanted this to be a quick project. So I put my fabric over it. Luckily it was fabric I had in hand (remember this project?).
It is not perfect, but it works for now. The chair itself has some scratches and dings that I want to take care of later....
