Wicker Chair: Before & After



A friend asked me to redo her chair.  She is a photographer and wanted it for a photo prop.


It was looking photo worthy...thats for sure.  I had to take out about a MILLION staples. 
I guess whoever originally made the chair wanted it red forever!



I few coats of high gloss spray paint it it looked fantastic.


I bought the 3/8 button kits at hobby lobby.  I covered them with my black satin, by following the package directions.  I made my own ruffle and piping from the black satin.  I bought the gold decorative nails at Lowes. I just hammered them into place over my ruffles edge.  It took me over an hour.
