Chair Update

I picked up this chair at a thrift store.  I think I'm correct in calling it a barrel-back chair.  Designers out there - feel free to correct me!
I loved the stitched detailing on the seat-back.

I wanted to update the look so I first painted it a light gray with just a hint of blue.  I felt it needed something more so I used my antique pewter kit.
Here is a close-up that shows how the imperfections in the wood picked up the antique pewter treatment. 

I also cleaned and treated the leather.  I think this chair that once looked made for an office now looks made for a chic room!
