To Paint Or Not To Paint?

Yesterday I purchased the most fabulous vintage peacock wicker fan back chaise lounge chair I found on Craigslist. Yes I have seen tons of the fan back chairs on C-list but never a chaise. I haven't decided whether to paint it yet, or if I am going to re do the chair for myself or for a client. To paint or not to paint? There are so many fabulous combinations either way!


  1. I found you via Bryn Alexandra and am loving you site. I would totally paint the chair -- go white and then you can swap out the cushion to new colors once you get tired of the old.

  2. Hi! I love your blog and found you through Kirsten's blog for your feature friday. I would opt not to paint this one - I think I like would keep it and kick up the fabric on the cushion. I'm a new follower - and congrats on your Post feature - that is wonderful.

  3. I kept going back and forth with this and so far I have not painted it. Part of me likes it natural and the other part of me thinks it would be a pia to paint because of all the different layers and the weave of the chair. I am sure I will get around to getting a fabulous seat made but until then it looks exactly the same as original picture. Thanks for the feedback!

  4. Ooohhh, lovely! Usually I would say paint that puppy, but I think it would look fabulous natural with a colorful fabric.
    Love the blog! Found you through 6th Street.
