I can't begin to tell you how many times I've come across a beautiful chair that has busted caning. Even if caning is not your style, it still feels like there's something you should be able to do. Sure enough there is. This chair has a whole new vibe, want to see what it looks like today?

Mandi over at Vintage Revivals was lucky enough to do an entire diy room makeover for one of her readers and the results are nothing short of fabulous. The budget was low and there's a large amount of creativity happening in the final look.

In the midst of this crazy makeover was this chair. Once with blue upholstery and sad, broken caning, it was sure to live out its life at the thrift store for some time. That is, until Mandi saw the chair. A coat of paint and some jute upholstery webbing later and she has a brand new look that is seriously photo worthy.
