Materials: Poang, fabric, walnut finish

I had an IKEA Poang chair that I hated.  Normally the Poang doesn't bother me, but this one originally had a red glossy wood finish with a dark green seat.  yuck!  I wish I had taken photos of it before changing it because it was absolutely hideous and I can't find this combination in google images.  I  sanded the entire thing, gave it a walnut finish and changed the entire mid section so that the fabric supports your weight.  The cost of redoing the chair was surprisingly low since I used wood from the chair.  I just bought the thick fabric and screws that hold it on, which only cost about 15 dollars. The orange scented wax I used cost more than that!
