It had a cute flower detail on the top.
I originally was conflicted as to whether I should refinish its wood stained finish or just paint it, but when I attempted to refinish a small portion of it I realized that this was not a real antique and was made of three different types of wood. I didn't think it would refinish well, so I went ahead and brought out my paint.
I yanked the seat off of it and applied Krud Kutter's Pre-Paint Cleaner to degloss the finish.
The original seat was a little hard so I added a little more padding to it and then recovered it with a new fabric (after I got rid of all that old nasty fabric that was on there - three different layers of somewhat questionable fabric choices).
It now matches my table that I re-did a few weeks ago.
