Am I Getting Into the Re-Upholstery Business?

I bought this great little chair with its exposed turned wood legs and sweet, though beat-up, cream and blue vine-y fabric.  It's a bit smaller scale than fits my frame, but it is still a great chair.  So I bought it and loved it in my little Kent apartment with my not so little Maine Coon, Ziggy, who loved it too.  A little too much... little chair

...that one arm in particular.  So when I moved back to Indiana and had the opportunity to open my own antique booth, I thought: "No problem.  I'll slipcover it!"  And someone will love it just like I have. Except that Ziggy did such a good job ripping the crap out of that corner that he gave me a glimpse of some pretty cool fabric underneath the top layer.  I thought that maaaybeee it would have covered the whole thing and I would only have to make a slipcover if I felt like it (which I really didn't feel like doing)  It tempted me just enough to do this...

So right off the bat I find the back isn't covered with the other fabric [which you can see on the left hand side for about 6", thanks to Zig], but then it made me remember the deconstructed line of furniture that Restoration Hardware sells.

Hey - I can do that!!

.

So then I ripped off the outside sections under the arms, which I will have to show you later because I forgot to photograph that.  And I stopped there.  I don't know exactly how I'm going to proceed, but I really am thinking I'd like to give this whole deconstructed chair thing a go.   And then there is the part of me that wonders - has anyone in the whole wide world bought, or even wanted to buy, one of those chairs?!?!?!  I mean they are pretty style specific.  Is there anyone that would want to buy this thing if I made it?

.

Is there??

.

I just don't know...

.

So while I'm trying to decide my game plan for this poor, innocent, defenseless, adorable little chair, I'll leave you with a couple more photos of it...

So, what would you do?
