Welcome to TeX.sx! Not a proper answer, but take a look at the titlesec package, there is an example on page 22 of the manual. –  Torbjørn T. Jan 14 '13 at 18:54

Here's a possible solution using the titlesec package:

\documentclass{book} 
\usepackage{titlesec}

\titleformat{\chapter}[display]
  {\bfseries\huge}
  {\filleft\Large\chaptertitlename~\thechapter}
  {3ex}
  {\titlerule\vspace{1.5ex}\filright}
  [\vspace{1ex}\titlerule]

\begin{document}

\chapter*{Test Unnumbered Chapter}
\chapter{Test Numbered Chapter}

\end{document}

An image of the unnumbered chapter:

and an image of the numbered chapter:
