Early one Saturday morning my good friend Jennifer and I found this charming wicker chair, belonging to a set of six additional wicker pieces. As I riffled through my pocket, I could barely get the moe out fast enough. Jennifer graciously offered to haul the MOTHER LOAD home for me. Her pick-up truck was stuffed full, from top to bottom!! That's when I realized I love and adore this wonderful lady . . . We had the giggles as we drove away . . .
After further inspection I realized the paint was original. My thoughts were to paint or not to paint ????
I finally decided the chair needed a fresh coat of paint. I custom mixed Oil based raw umber thinned with paint thinner.
My creative friend Jennifer collects & sells antiques and mentioned that she had a European 1956 antique grain sack, surprisingly she loaned it to me. You can probably guess where it ended up ??????
The wear on the grain sack makes it so charming !!! It’s ONE-OF-A-KIND. . .
The woven reed on the wicker is all intact.
I was able to use the whole grain sack for this reversible stylish cushion(with a zipper)!
Happy Monday Everyone !!
