This is another of the chairs I pulled out of the basement to makeover.
Close up of the broken out caned seat. (and the dust)
The back detail was one of my favorites.
After a couple of coats of paint. For this one I spray painted red along the edges first. I wanted to distress it so the red would show through, rather than the dark wood.
I took my jigsaw and trimmed around the inside of the caned seat to create a wider rounded opening.
A curb found Dutch oven would now fit perfectly in the opening.
See how the handles keep it from falling through?
A perfect fit!
Some thrift store accessories.
A watering can.
A one dollar birdhouse.
Some paint touch ups.
And a pot of cheerful yellow and purple pansies.
Give new life to the beat up old chair.
All for a grand total of $11.00!
I love how the red shows through the white paint.
This one went for $45 in the auction. I actually liked this one better than the Herb Garden chair.
