Last summer I found this cute curvy chair at a yard sale for $2!
There were a few small holes in the caning, but it still had lots of life left, so I brought it home and painted it, and used it at my office desk for a while.
Then something funny happened.
I had some family over and we had been out on the lake boating.
When we got back, everyone was still a little damp,
and for some reason, someone needed to look something up on the computer, so they sat on the newly refinished curvy cane chair.
Well, in case you ever wanted to know, or for future reference, when caning gets wet, it changes it's shape to whatever is pushing on it.
Over the next weeks and months, it bent more and more and more, till it ended up like this:
But I didn't get rid of it.
I would position my rear-end on the edge and switch sides when it got uncomfortable.
After a few weeks of sitting on it like this, I decided it was time for another redo.
So I took out the caning, and it has been sitting for the last 4-5 months, waiting to be redone.
Today I got to it!
I cut a piece of wood to fit the seat, then added foam and fabric.
This is what I ended up with:
Now this chair is waaaaaay more comfortable to sit in and the fabric pretty much matches everything in my house.
What project have you been putting off forever?
