First I unscrewed and re-upholstered the chair seat. Then I spray-painted all the wood black (removing the new seat, of course!)

Next I created the wings from fabric, inserting wire along the edges and stiffening the cloth with a hardener and some glue. Then I attached the wings and viola!

Wing Back Chair: Black Swallowtail, Papilio polyxenes
