Recently, I took a lot of things to a local consignment store near me. It's a new one so I took my time to look around while I was there. I spotted this pretty painted wicker rocking chair almost immediately! I immediately fell in love with it's lines and the ticking stripe fabric on it. It was in mint condition too. So.................it came home with me! Cue the "I Feel Happy" music. After getting it home, I played around with it in different areas. Ultimately, though, it worked out best in my family room in place of another chair that was there. That chair will now be sold at the same consignment store that this one came from. So, it's a win-win!
This is how it looked when I first brought it home.
I loved the dark brown paint that was used on it, but it just didn't work well in my mostly white home. It felt too dark. So, with my husbands help to cover all of the fabric (because he's so good at that) I spray painted it a glossy white. The seat cushion comes out thank goodness!
Here is what it looks like now.
Oh, and the very best part about this chair? It's very comfortable! My husband isn't a big fan of wicker for that reason, but with the extra thick cushion and upholstered back it is soft. It's also very well made. It doesn't "creak" when you sit in it like most wicker chairs.
Here is a view of the upholstered back.
I'm enjoying using this new consignment store and have already made some money too!
Do you like to shop at consignment stores?
Thanks for stopping by!
