See what the little darling did.
So when I got it home I checked it all over and found a Pier 1 tag on it - Score! This chair retailed for somewhere around $170 - $250. I figured what she needed was a haircut & color, so I got out my scissors and started trimming. All it needed was the frayed parts cut off and then on to the color. First I tried some restore-a-finish, but it didn't absorb enough into the wicker. Then I played around with some different stains until the color was right. I used a cheap chip brush and just slathered on the cherry stain. See how well it took .
So back to the drawing board. Awhile back my sister got me a coffee sack from her son's coffee distributor. Did I mention that Alley Cat Coffee inside of Paris Flea Market in Coeur d'Alene ID has the best coffee ever? It does. Anyhow, the distributor takes donations from the coffee bean sacks and sends the money to Colombian relief agencies. I thought this one fit the personality of the chair.
So I cut 2 inches of foam to fit the seat and covered it with the top part of this sack. I saved the bottom for another project. Here she is all finished. Doesn't it look like it should be on a lanai overlooking the ocean?
