I'm not sure what it is about orange, but I'm totally into it right now. I saw this chair at one of my favorite antique stores in Nashville last week but decided to pass on it. When I went in again a few days ago, I couldn't resist it's retro charm... especially with a $42 price tag.
I've seen so many "chair makeovers" in magazines recently, and I saw potential in this really solid, comfortable beauty. I'm planning to paint the wood white to give it a much fresher appearance. I'm going to wait until after the baby's born just to be safe (no toxic paint fumes!). Since it has those wicker sections, do you think I should try to use latex paint and a brush, or semi-gloss spray paint? I've never painted anything like this before. Ideas?
