A couple of summers ago my husband and I walked around the neighborhood during our community garage sale weekend. We happened upon this chair in a driveway. I loved the caning, shape, and size. The family just wanted to get rid of all their stuff (and I get that!) so they offered the chair to us for $6.00. Well, how could I pass that up? So Hubby carried it home for me. I didn't do anything to the chair that summer, but last summer when I was redecorating our guest room I got the chair out.
As you can see it was dark wood so I primed it and then painted it several coats of a low sheen white. Then I made a new seat and covered it with a rose print in off white and dark pinks. I love the chair but it doesn't fit well in the guest room. Fortunately, we redecorated our family room this Fall and it fits perfectly nestled in a corner between the fireplace and my new bookcases.
