Yes you read that title correctly! I rescued 2 of these chairs from my neighbors trash almost 4 years ago! A sin I tell you! Could you imagine, throwing these out? The caning was still completely PERFECT! They just needed a coat of paint and some new fabric.first item we sold. We had just unloaded everything (we hadn't even set up yet) and I watched it walk out the door. It was a bitter-sweet moment. I really wanted to set the whole booth up and get to sit back and look at the fruits of my labor. Oh well...guess you need to appreciated the fact that it sold! That's why we were setting to booth up in the first place, was to sell things. Now, I have finished the second one and will be taking it to the booth this weekend.
Here is a picture of it before! I had shared this in a previous post
I decided to paint this one black. I used Rustoleum's 2X Coverage in Semi-Gloss Black since I don't have a spray gun.
Then I lightly distressed it and waxed it with Minwax special dark and recovered it in a floral toile fabric I found at Hobby Lobby.

I am thrilled with the end result! What do you think?
