Trash to Treasure

S: Another trashy find from my mom's neighborhood, circa college, was a wooden rocking chair. When I found it, it was bare wood, and missing all the caning in the seat and the back. My dad helped me cut out a piece of wood for the seat and screw it in to place. Then the whole chair got a coat of earl gray paint, one of my favorite colors.

I covered the repaired seat with an inexpensive cream colored cushion, but had to be a little more creative with the back of the chair. After pricing caning I decided to use ribbon instead. I weaved it in and out of the holes left from the caning and tied it off in the back. ta da! a brand new look!
