Mason Chair

Tony knows me well.  The other day he sent me a message and said he had a surprise for me that I was really going to love.  Aw. Yup, he was right.  He pulled in the driveway with a chair in the back of his truck!  Tony is in the Masonic Lodge and they are updating and selling off some of their old chairs.  So, he nabbed one.  He picked the oldest (see, he does know me well!).  It even has straps underneath holding old straw stuffing in!

The leather seat is in bad shape, so we plan to refurbish it.  I would love to find some old, worn looking leather for the replacement (if you know where I can accomplish this please let me know!).  We would really like to keep the nostalgia of the chair, so are trying to keep it similar to its original look.  Currently Tony has set up camp for the new chair at the head of the table 🙂

Now, where to find pre-worn leather pieces!??
