I bought two of these wicker chairs off of Bisman...and I spent way too much on them. The seller let me bring one home to see how it would work...I liked it, but I didn't love it. My boys were CrAzY about it and wanted me to get both. So I bought them...thinking, I'll make them work. Ha!
Honestly, I had major buyers remorse. Major.
First, the color was wrong.
I was planning on putting them in our great room, facing the kitchen. The great room is full of brown...walls, couches, piano, table, recliner.
Second, the two chairs were a different color.
One seemed to have yellowed in the sun?
So...I stained them. Brown. I liked it better, not so yellowed. But the darn stain stayed tacky even after I took some mineral spirits after it. Then I did lacquer thinner and that helped. A little.
They had an oily feel that I couldn't remove...
so I had a can of General Finishes wax in Pickle that the color had
settled to the bottom of the can. So I used those chunks and gave the stupid chairs a coat of that. I was certain they were going to end up in the trash.
Before and After.
Here they are today...
my mom recovered the burgundy cushions in a
nice green and brought them today.
So, I'm still not sure.
I like the white...I have been trying to add hints of it into my home.
This is a big hint.
Thanks for reading.
