She came home with me for a mere $7. Here Franklin is testing out the seat. He doesn't look very comfortable. And for good reason--the seat was dirty. In fact, the whole chair was. But that can be fixed.
With a little sanding, priming, and painting, my chair frame was looking better than ever. (The picture below is just the priming phase. I guess I didn't take any pictures of it after I painted...)
Some new pretty fabric on the seat really completes the look!
And just got good measure, here the new chair is in place at my desk.
