Wicker Chair REDO

The price was definitely right for this redo!
 Free! plus 2 can's of spray paint and some elbow grease...
 total $7!
My mom offered me a wicker chair that she no longer wanted.
I thought I would put it in Aubrey's room when we eventiually get around to redecorating it. But two nights ago, I brought it into the sunroom to the spot we already had reserved for a leather chair eventually. The color was definitely not right but I loved the texture and comfort it added to the room.
Here it is before I got my paint out :)

Here it is after 2 coats of dark brown spray paint.
 (I used Rustoleum Indoor/Outdoor Gloss in French Roast)
Then, because I can't seem to like anything that looks new in my home,
I got out my sandpaper and roughed it up a little. It changed the look completely because it brought out some of the golden brown underneath.
And you can see she also got a new cushion. Well, kind of!
I took that yellow floral one and gave it a new look.
First I cut out the same shape from a piece of foam board (leftover from a school project!)


Then I sprayed the foam board with some spray adhesive and stuck it to the yellow cushion.
After that, I used a piece of leftover clean drop cloth (yup, same one you get when you are painting. Super cheap and looks just like linen!) and I covered the cushion and foam board and stapled it to it.

Whoa! A lot of pictures of one chair! :) 




I really love the new look and think it is perfect in the sunroom!
