After scoring these sweet cane back chairs from a Craigslist seller, Maria wondered what to do with them. Well, inspiration struck, and she shared her chic transformation with us.

I’m a sucker for a DwellStudio fabric, so I must applaud Maria’s good taste (and cute styling)!

From Maria:

Way back in June, I found two great cane back chairs on Craigslist for a great price. The seller was so anxious to get them out of his basement that he even delivered them right to my door. I have been hoarding these chairs in my stash ever since. Part of me was waiting for inspiration (that’s the story I’m sticking to). 

Finally, I found the perfect fabric and completely redid them by spray painting the frames black and reupholstering the seats. It was so worth it in the end, and it feels so good to have these marked off my to-do list.

Thanks, Maria!
