Inspiration: Painted Rattan Chairs

I've been thinking about color options for the thrift store chair I picked up last weekend. Here she is in all of her $7 glory!

I know some people would prefer to leave this chair in its natural state, but the arms have plenty or scratches and flaws that make me think it really needs a coat of glossy, colorful paint. Plus I think a great color will make the pattern really pop!

I found some great inspiration images on Pinterest, but I'm still undecided on what we should do.

 This one even has a similar pattern!


What do you think? Do you like any of those colors?

One of the challenges I'm facing is that I can't find that many options for a cushion. These are some that I'm considering:


{Crate & Barrel}
{World Market}
{Pier 1}

I'm leaning toward the simple white cushion so that I can paint the chair different colors and keep the same cushion. I think that would give me the greatest versatility and the ability to move this chair from one room to another. 

What do you think?
