Tutorial Tuesday: Cane Back Chair Redo

**Now I didn’t get overly ambitious and document my entire process in redo-ing this thrifted chair, but it was so simple and such few steps, I figure the before and after will do just fine. Also? Pardon the photo quality. I may have just used my cell phone to document…::ehem::

There’s a complete technique, a method if you will, when it comes to thrifting. It takes patience, focus, and a wee bit of adventure and most of all: whimsy. You must have a vision and really take note of some hideous piece of something and its deeply hidden potential.

At our first meet’n’greet event at Urban Picnic this Friday, we will have this darling piece showcased for your viewing pleasure.

Before it was a high gloss finish, minty green with a raggedy hunter green corduroy seat cushion. That? Will just not do.


After a single coat using Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover 2X in Satin Granite, a half yard of a darling fabric, and my trusty staple gun, I say she’s looking might fine.

Make sure you come out to our fabulous meet’n’greet event this Friday, June 10th from 6p-8p at Urban Picnic. It will be an evening filled with great food, information on our big Fall event, fun swag and a take home project for all attendees. Join us and spread the love!
