The little chair that could.

During the short break I had between deadlines, I decided to spruce up this cute chair that I, um, "acquired." The caning was in good shape but the wood needed a little TLC and the cushion was rocking a 1970's vibe.



After I painted it and added a simple cushion, I was able to move it from the garage into the sunroom. We're still in the process of decorating the sunroom, so please excuse the lack of other furniture. I'm always amazed by what a difference a little paint can make to an old piece of furniture.
