Random Item of the Day

This chair used to be my paternal granfathers.  I remember sitting in this chair as a child, usually while reading books.  Even now I enjoy sitting in it to read or watch television.  It's in our bedroom so it doesn't get used often.  As it's probably about sixty years old, it's for the best.

I want to get it refurbished someday but the last time I checked into it, it was going to be crazy expensive.  I wouldn't dream of attempting it it myself with the tuck & roll upholstery.  It's actually in really good condition other than the wear on the armrests.  I would have it recovered with period correct fabric and probably in a dark forest green.  The rosy pink isn't bad but not my style.
