Big ugly chair-finished

Well, here it is, the big ugly chair has been finished. I learned quite a bit about upholstery, but have a long way to go. It was not as hard to get a smooth finish on the front panels, as they curve outward.

The back panels show every flaw, especially the weave flaws inherent in antique linen.
Antique brass rolling wheels were added to the legs. This chair is quite heavy, and they help to move it around.
The edges of the linen were topped in vintage cotton tape, with a subtle pale green coloring. The brass tacks were put over this for a cleaner edge. 
Badger cat loves his new chair. An old down pillow was added over the foam cushion, making for a pretty comfy cat chair.
