Ever since I read Kim's blog about her redux of a couple of bamboo/cane chairs at Desire to Inspire over the Easter weekend, I've been trawling Craigslist in the hopes of finding my own chairs(s) to re-furnish. And I finally scored with this lovely armchair which cost me a grand total of $30!! It was manufactured by DR Kincaid in North Carolina and they've got some pretty nice chairs - this one is a favourite.
I bought it from a student who will be returning to Japan after graduation this August and it is really comfortable. The wood is scratched in several places and the finish on the cane is worn but I can fix that easily with a few coats of paint...I'm thinking a black-brown because the wood finish looks rather granny-ish.
As for the fabric! Well....this is where I plan to have lots of fun because I'd like to find a really bright and fun print. The hunt begins!
