Trash Day: Office Chair

Elisa from What The Vita? sent in this chair she scored for $5.  To some of you it might not look like much, but to me, it's just what I need in my office!  The first thought that came to mind was this . . .
and this.
Old Hickory Tannery Turquoise Chair, Neiman Marcus
 So if this was my chair, I would pony up the cash and go for one of these.
Wild Faux Leather, Camel $279.80
Wild Faux Leather, Ash $279.80
Wild Faux Leather, Oyster $279.80
Call me crazy, but I love this chair and think it's totally worth the extra cost of the fabric and professional upholstering.  I love its vintage lines, chrome legs & feet, and the fact that it has arms is a huge bonus. The casters don't hurt either.   It's definitely not something you'll see in someone else's space (especially with one of these fabrics), and the price was too good to be true.   I'm actually looking for the perfect office chair now, and if I ever find one like this, rest assured that it's coming home with me.

Alisa also has some great makeover ideas for featuring this chair in her space, so check her out. Thanks again for sharing!
