Rattan Chair Slipcovered

The cushions on this yard sale chair got new drop cloth slipcovers. I just sewed simple slips that are easy to toss in the wash.

The chair is in our living room that I recently painted Benjamin Moore Cotton Balls. Our living room, like the rest of our home ; ) is a work in progress. We sold the pine cabinet because I felt it was too small, and I'm still searching for something affordable for that wall and another end table (the little bench makes a good stand in bookcase, eh?) I'm also working on a gallery wall but don't want to put nails in the wall until I have all the pieces layed out.

We found this comfy chair (I think it is rattan?) at a yard sale for $5. I love the shape and airiness of it.




I'm trying to decide if I should leave the frame brown, or paint it white? We like the brown and think it works well with the leather couch and I'm thinking white would blend in too much with the white walls. I'm tossing around the idea of grey too. Any opinions?

I hope you are having a great week and if you are getting this heat wave that you try to stay cool! It is 36C (97 F) here in southern Ontario but with the humidity feels like 47C ( 116 F).

  2. Looks great in the new slips and I like the brown, but a gray wash might look good, too.

  3. What a great chair! I like the brown but I have to say that I am drawn to all things grey right now.
