What a whirlwind weekend we had around the Stagg household. We finished our living room, and Saturday was spent shooting and documenting and breathing again. Phew! And now that it’s done it’s amazing how much it has completely transformed our house. I can’t wait to share it all this week.
Today I’m taking you back to the deck and sharing more about a cute little nook involving a nifty wicker chair and accent table/stool I picked up at a thrift store.
Wicker chairs are everywhere, my friends. I spot them nearly every time I go to a thrift store and they are cheap. By cheap, I mean $5-$10. Some of them are very Palm Beach retirement community/Golden Girls but more often than not, they are oozing with potential and awesomely versatile. Take this guy for example:
I wanted to add some texture and depth to my deck to mix up the metal dining table. This chair and a coordinating wicker accent table did just the trick. But they needed a little repair work.
Wicker chairs are usually wrapped at the legs and if they’re at a thrift store, the chance are pretty high that wrapping has come loose. Not to fret. It’s easily fixed.
I used some Liquid Nails glue from the hardware store to hold it back together. Glue, wrap, glue some more, wrap some more. Then use some electrical or painter’s tape to hold it in place until it’s good and dry. And there you go. Good as new and ready for a fur throw, a darling pillow, and a corner to sit in.
In the right space, a groovy wicker chair looks great indoors as well. A fur throw (this one is from Ikea) makes a wicker chair not only comfortable, but also feel more luxurious. They add interest and style to any space. And the little table (I think it may technically be a stool, but for me, I say table) is so cute with a tray and some fresh flowers.
So I say rescue a wicker chair. Go ahead, I give you permission to take one home today. Just don’t go get a Blanche haircut.
Jam packed week of projects and reveals ahead! And have you entered the pillow giveaway yet? Ya’ll don’t wanna miss it!
