Goodwill chair makeover!


I found this great bamboo chair at Goodwill. I even posted about it asking if anyone knew more about it and for some ideas. After great research I did find that it is mid-century, and most likely a Ficks Reed chair. I decided to not restore to original state but rather do what I wanted. I'm keeping this one, so I did it to match my decor!

I painted everything! Even the fabric cushion! It turned out great. I used a finishing wax when I was finished and gave the cushions a soft leather feel!

I used metallic leafing paint for the stripe and ends of the arms!
