Don'tcha just love finding treasures in thrifts stores? That moment when you lock eyes with an item, and you see your future with it (and you coyly take out a pen b/c you are gonna stab a bitch in the jugular if she even looks like she's lusting after YOUR treasure). Yep....good times. Well, I recently found such a treasure at Value Village.
A cute little cane back chair ! She's cute enough, but I had big plans for her. And the best part.........$4.24!!!! Seriously! I hightailed it outta that store in case they came to their senses and charged a reasonable price. Value Village is a local chain of thrift stores and if you haven't been, they are FABULOUS! Their prices are about 2/3 cheaper than Goodwill (Dude, Goodwill is getting expensive!) and they have nicer things most of the time. Very cute clothes too! I think most of my jackets come from the Village
Now for the rehab process.....I took off the cushion and sprayed the whole chair with a layer of Rustoleum primer. Next day, I added two coats of Rustoleum American Accents Blossum White (you can find it at JoAnn Fabrics or Hobby Lobby) I think it took about 4 coats total of Blossum White. I then followed up with a spray sealer.
