Oh Kijiji, on a dark winter night you are a dream weaver.
It's January, it's cold, and as you can probably tell I am spending a lot of time on kijiji. I suddenly wanted a chair with a cane back, seat, arms - anything! I saw a stunning chair but it was $1000.00 which is beyond single mom budget.
Then I saw this chair and I knew it would satisfy my urge for a cane chair and thought I could make it work.
It was in my budget range, white and even already distressed. The only issue was the seat cover which was not my style. A few weeks ago in my basement I found a hammock made of strong cotton that had aged beautifully, I liked the colour and wanted to use it with something.
It seems like they would be nice together. So off came the previous seat cover and I discovered a .49 cent paint can opener is perfect for getting off old staples.
With a bit of work I got it all together.
Yowza! I love it.
It works in the small corner of my living room that needed something petite. It's by the window, next to my marble cherub table with a little lamp with crystals and it's all just so french and charming.
I'm so happy with the results.
