Back in Action - The Rescued Chair

Sometimes I come across the saddest looking pieces of furniture.  Like this….

Rattan chair BEFORE
I understand that styles and taste change but one thing that I do NOT understand is tweed fabric.   It.is.nasty!   Not only is it unattractive but very rough and scratchy on the skin.  The saving grace for this chair were the curvy lines and legs. 

So after a little time at the spa…….

Rattan chair AFTER
Here it is all exfoliated, moisturized and wearing new duds.  Oh the powers of paint!   And a little elbow grease!
