Craigslist Finds: Accent Chairs

A good accent chair is the key to pulling any room together.   Here are a couple recent finds off the ol’ Craigslist.

1000 Wonderful Things Craigslist FInds Vintage Cane ChairVintage Cane Back Chair – $45

The upholstery on this already looks pretty good as does the wood, so I would add a bright pillow instead of taking this on as a total project.

1000 Wonderful Things Craigslist Finds Blue Barrel ChairVintage Barrel Chair – $20

I love the blue on this one and same as before, it looks like it’s in pretty good condition.  I would tape off the fabric really well and paint the wood parts glossy white. (Use oil based paint to get super shine.  Just be sure to wear gloves and clothes you don’t care about.  Also, absolutely use a drop cloth.  Oil based paint will not come off anything.)

1000 Wonderful Things Craigslist FInds Mid Century ChairBurnt Orange Mid Century – $165

If you can make this color work, go for it.  I would try to negotiate down if you’re going to reupholster it though.

Happy CL-ing and have a great holiday weekend!
