So I bought this chair at a Barn sale for $5..... Actually let me rephrase that, I had a lady retrieve this chair from her dumpster while I was shopping at a barn sale. Lol! Am I the only one that can see the potential?
It needed a washing. I took it apart and scrubbed it and hosed it off in my front yard. The next step was to preserve that fabulous rusty patina, so I just painted polyurethane right on the metal frame.
When it was time to add the trim I wasn't thrilled with my selection on hand. But I noticed that by flipping over this trim it had just the look I was going for on the back side. Less refined, and totally backwards works for me!
I totally love the way it turned out, especially when you consider where we started. It didn't last long in my space over at the shop. It was only on the floor for a few days before it was snatched up by an interior designer. I hope I find another one of these someday.
