Today’s Your Pick submission brings up a blast from the past. Remember those big, solid brown cane chairs that were in everyone’s den or “sun room”? These were huge in the 80′s and early 90′s (similar to my ugly 80′s buffet), for some reason I’m thinking Golden Girls…man, I loved that show! Anyway, point is, those original cane chairs went out a long time ago, right along with hi-top sneakers and spandex shorts. However, the modernized cane chair has made a big come back, like these from Shabbfufu:
This new cane chair trend is what prompted Debbie (of meandmydiy) to transform an old, outdated cane chair for her daughters room. Debbie decided to paint her chair a weathered shade of blue with white cane to give it a fresh, updated look. And the best part? She used painters canvas drop cloth material to recover the chair’s fabric and pillows! How clever and innovative!
Check out the incredible results…
Debbie shares the story behind her transformation:
“This is a chair that I picked up from Craigslist and refinished for my daughter’s bedroom. I used paint to transform the frame, and painter’s canvas drop clothes to do the rest. The matching pillow was also made from the same drop cloth, and painted using latex paint and painter’s tape. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results!”
Debbie’s cane chair transformation turned out amazing!
