AT Oh My! Creative, Susan explains that this old, broken chair was a source of mild contention between she and her husband. He has wanted her to get rid of it for the past ten years. On the other hand, she tells us, "At nearly 100 years old, and a garage sale rescue from my mother’s attic, I knew it was destined for greatness."
Sometimes a piece of furniture is fine as it is....other than it just doesn't look right in the space you have for it. That was the problem with this wicker chair in a corner of Christina's bedroom. "My inner battle was that the chair’s finish was pretty as-is. It just didn’t go with the room," she tells us on her blog, Operation Home.
Sarah from Homeology was excited to update her outdoor spaces this year. Unfortunately, an unanticipated air conditioner replacement put a big dent in her budget. Sarah was forced to put some of her updates on the backburner and cut corners on the others. She was able to have her gorgeous mid century modern deck chairs professionally refinished, but really didn't want to put faded cushions on such pretty chairs.
