Refurbished Cane Chairs

Jennifer, who blogs at City Farmhouse, was out on her morning jog when she spotted these cane chairs in a curbside garbage pile.    She’d been eyeing similar chairs online and at Home Goods, so she was thrilled to rescue them from the trash.  She took them home for a makeover.

Two cans of spray paint, a corner of a canvas dropcloth, and some stencils were all it took to give these chairs a brand new look.  I really, really like the blue stripe along with the stenciled numbers on the cushions.  It’s a simple–but unexpected–variation on a popular trend.

Stop by City Farmhouse to find out all about how Jennifer made these two old chairs look so fresh and fun.

    Love the transformation! I once had a set of caned chairs, but gave them away. Oh to have them back again now! Le sigh.

    Love this! Wanting to recover my dining chairs with grain sackcloth but couldn’t justify the cost. These are even cuter. Thank you for the idea.
