This week's Thrifty Thursday find was actually a gift - two rattan chairs that have graced the homes of my grandmother and mom, my college apartment, and my sister's first house (while I lived in California). Since they were free to me and in need of some fixing up, I am counting them as "thrifty". When I got the chairs, I didn't really appreciate rattan and relegated the chairs to the porch. Then I saw a pair of amazing rattan chairs painted glossy black at a show house. I think I painted my chairs that same weekend.
Here's the before...
and here's the after... I spray painted them glossy black and covered the cushions with a coral printed burlap-esque fabric.
To quote the needle point pillow (made by my dad for my mom), I love them madly.
