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?

  1. I love the black/white ikat cushion! You can still change the color out! Love the turq and green inspiration chairs too. Can't wait to see what you decide!

  2. This brand is well-known for fast deals, but even more so known for unbeatable prices. It's hard to top Flash Furniture in style or price, which is why they are one of the best brands to shop from this holiday season.laywayback.com/recliners/best-pet-waterproof-ottoman-slipcovers/
