While Nicolette's design senses to her that this chair had serious potential, but rehabing the chair in its original fashion was beyond her pay grade. So she got creative, and with a little paint, some upholsury magic and voilá!
From Nicolette: Once I closed on my new house I panicked, I knew it was bigger than my current place, so I suddenly went chair crazy. Since home renovation is expensive I had to budget. When I saw this cane rocking chair it had seen better days, the seat had a huge hole in it. Cane work is completely beyond my skill-set but I was determined to breathe new life into it so I decided to make a new upholstered seat. While I was at it I thought I would give the rest of the chair an upgrade too. It sits so nicely in the hall.
Thank you, Nicolette! You can see more on Nicolette's blog Archie and the Rug.
