La Bete Noire "The Black Beast"
so that's what I named it. I wish I took a before picture, but just think high gloss cherry of the late '80s or early '90s with a seat covered in a navy and gold fabric. The seat didn't even go with this chair, my husband had to cut it down to fit. He is so talented!
This chair sat in my computer room for about a month and a half staring at me, waiting for me to make up my mind what to do with it. At first I thought I would paint it a French blue or antique white but neither seemed right. Then my mother in law thought I should just leave it with the finish it had. I kind of played with that idea for a while thinking I would just recover the seat in a leopard print but it just wasn't right. It finally hit me that this was more Spanish then French, so I decided on black.
