  4. Okay...something is lost on me here. The before and after look the same to me. Don't get me wrong, it is an amazing chair and to me, it needed nothing. But...I can't see a change?? lol duh me.

    1. Hi Lesley,
      Well the biggest change is the gutting and reupholstering of the seat and back.
      The owner wanted the frame to be left as is but the lions cleaned up so I did a light cleaning of the frame and then spent a day detail cleaning the grime on the lions, then waxed & buffed. Check out the grime around it's paws, tail, ears, mane and eyes in the Before photo and how it's missing in the After photos.
