but I only have black, pink, and white/clear buttons. Not a very good collection.The backing is some fabric that I acquired mysteriously. It’s pretty stiff and didn’t iron very well (the white ink melted a little?) so I figured it’d be a good backing for a wall quilt that won’t ever get washed.
So for now I’ll leave it like this and find somewhere nice to hang it.

Made completely of scraps from various people.
One of my bosses had found it and it’s twin but had left them sitting in the rain for a few days. They have RJR and a string of numbers stamped on one of the legs but I can’t find anything about Herman Miller making chairs for RJ Reynolds. This one’s backing was coming apart but it was easily fixable and now I’m left wondering if it’ll be sacrilegious to spray paint it. The upholstery is yellow and dirty, the back is crosshatched and very ’70s, and the feet/base are silver when the rest is black. I want to paint the fabric and paint the base and back a shiny black. I think that ultimately if I’m making the chair into something I like a lot more, that’s what matters. And I can still brag that I have a Herman Miller chair :) And that brings the number of chairs I need to (re)finish up to 5, or 9 if you count recovering the dining room chairs that Addie munched on. No biggie :-/
