I've been on the hunt for a couple of wicker chairs that I could rehab but haven't had much luck until a few weeks ago. My mom found two great chairs at an antique store for $10 each. Some of you have asked how I find such great bargains. Well, this is one way. My mom finds them for me. :-)
The really great part is that they are in wonderful structural shape and only need some cosmetic work. Anything beyond some minor repairs is to much for my mind to tackle right now.
Here is one of the chairs before I spruced it up. I love the shape of the chair and the design of the wicker! It had been painted before and was a forest green color.
I followed the steps outlined in my Furniture Rehab 101 tutorial. Clean, prime, paint. Very simple.
And here is the finished product. I used black satin spray paint. The cushion was on clearance at Wallyworld. I made the pillow using the process described by Carrie at Buzzings of a Queen Bee for pillow mistreatments. No sewing involved!!!!!!
I think it's time to hang some things on the walls.
