I saw this ornate cast-iron chair in an antique shop, I love the details on it. I was excited because it didn't cost the earth! It was gold, I bought it. I had in mind to paint it white. I've seen one similar to this in a chic French homeware shop near the city, in its white painted glory. It really attracted my attention. I never went to that shop to see how much it costs, but I bet it's not cheap.With its gold cushion.............. Definitely have to make a new cushion cover for when it's white!!!!!!! After a coat or two of paint(i.e. Dulux "White On White"), it's transformed into a Swan, not that it was an ugly duckling before, but it just wouldn't fit in too well here in gold, would it? I quite like it without the cushion, you can see the details on the seat. Well, the cushion cover can wait a bit............. Hope you enjoyed this small project, till next time, happy weekend!
