These beautiful cane barrel chairs were found at an estate sale in Snyder, NY. Although, the original wood/ stain was in perfect condition, Nicki & I felt that the chairs needed to be brightened up a bit. We were lucky the caning on both chairs were in such flawless condition. We decided it needed a twist so we opted for more unconventional paint option and went Metallic!
We brushed the chairs with an antique white base and applied a faux finish technique in a brushed nickel. We played with several techniques until the antique look was achieved. The chairs came out both sleek & sophisticated! We just love them!
(These chairs sold in one hour!)

We have been refurbishing furniture for years as a hobby. The furniture allows us to stay at home and be with our kids while still exercising our creativity. Nicki and I say it should be all about fun! We really do have so much fun creating pieces and even more fun knowing how much our customers like our work. It puts a smile on our faces knowing that an old piece of furniture has been transformed! We now have a steady stream of business, mainly from Facebook posts, and so the evolution of our hobby continues to grow.
All of our pieces are very reasonably priced, having ranged from $125-$450.
Thank you Jen for sharing this stunning chair project.
