I had to share this great find from a yard sale at the local college. I'd already decided to snag this chair - it has great mid-century modern lines, is in good condition, and is comfortable to sit on. Then I flipped it over and...surprise! It's genuine Thonet! For three dollars!
I'm happy with the chair as is for now, but I may refinish it at some point. These makeovers are quite inspiring:
