Last summer I was lucky enough to pick 3 Parsons chairs off a free pile. One was unrepairable and the other 2 needed work but I felt they would be a fun project. The chair was stained and dirty so I cleaned it up and painted the under body with a coat of fresh paint. I painted the legs grey and then a coat of black.
I think I still should make a small accent pillow to sit on the chair to finish it off.
