Q Project: mid-century modern recliner

Last summer my sister was kind enough to give me one of her unused mid-century modern recliner chairs.  I loved the simple lines of the chair but couldn’t move past the black painted frame.  One afternoon while my dh took the kids out for a treat at The Frontier Mart in Corrales, I decided to grab my nifty palm sander and gave this classic chair a much-needed face-lift.  My intuition told me that once the paint was removed I would expose a beautiful wood.  Come to find out, I was right!

Initially, I was thinking of reupholstering the chair with a funky fabric pattern similar to the re-upholstered Milo Baughman chair posted in Apartment Therapy.    What do you think?
