Black Wicker Chair - before and after

For $1.00 at a garage sale, I couldn't pass up this chair.

Even if it had 5 cocoons attached to the underside.

Armed with my tools, I got to work. 

When I took all the upholstery off the bottom cushion, I found this tag. It references dates from the 1920s, but that's all I know.
