So do you guys remember WAY LONG ago when I purchased a cane chair off a Craigslist vendor for $45? No? You don’t remember??…yeah, it was back in September (hanging head in shame). It took me EIGHT MONTHS to get my act together and finish this chair. Part of it was being unable to make a decision on the fabric and part of it was sheer laziness…well, maybe not laziness as much as lack of motivation. I work full time, after all, so finding time can be difficult sometimes. BUT these past few weeks I have found the motivation to finish my chair BECAUSE I’m ALMOST finished with my craft room. I’m well aware I’ve said that for about 9-10 months so far, but I’m being honest…I’m down to punch list items!!
SO let’s take a look back at the cane chair BEFORE it’s makeover in all it’s poop brown glory….
And the sad thing?? The previous owners HAD made over this chair…GAH! In case you were wondering, that is straw rope wrapped around the chair as cording. It really was a glorious sight.
Here’s the AFTER!! (with my new camera…you can 100% see the difference in the photos, no?!)
Here’s my finished chair with the Urban Outfitters rug I purchased several months ago with the help of you guys and the overwhelming vote for the yellow (thanks for that!).
