Cheery Yellow Rattan Chairs

Oh yay, it’s the first of May! To help celebrate Spring I thought I’d share with you these chairs I just finished… When I first saw these balloon back rattan chairs I knew I wanted to try to update them, give them some perkiness or something!

BEFORE

First I spray primed them, then I sprayed them with Rustoleum’s Summer Squash in a Satin finish. It took almost 4 cans to spray these suckers! Here they are after a little spray paint love…

I love this fabric! I bought the fabric first and then found just the right yellow paint to coordinate with it!

I bought new foam and made the box cushion covers, with zippers too! It took me FOR-EV-ER to make these covers, but I got it done and I love them!

Even though I have these staged outdoors they are not outdoor chairs. They are VERY comfortable and I absolutely loved them setting in my blue and white sunroom… my Hubby doesn’t care for them though Surprised smile I’m guessing he doesn’t like yellow…

Hope you dig them as much as I do!

Thanks for stopping by!

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hey there! You want to know more about me? Well here's a little bit... I'm the lucky wife of a Super Awesome Husband (SAH) and a mother of 3 wonderful girls. We moved to Louisville, KY in 2013 from Richmond, VA where I was refinishing, repairing and painting furniture as a serious "hobby". Since moving I have been spending most of my time designing and updating our new-to-us home, but I do enjoy getting out and exploring my new town as much as possible!

  2. I think they look fantastic! And kudos to you for making those cushions. I can do a lot of things, but sewing is not one of them. I’m impressed! 🙂

  3. I have a chir just like these that I bought in Hawaii 37 years ago. It had rockers on it that slipped off on a regular basis no matter what we did to try to attach them permanently! I rocked both my babies in it and tipped over at least once with eah one. (nobody hurt)
    I love the cushion. I just made two round box cushions for my daughter. Not sure I have the nerve to try one like you made. Chairs look great!

  5. Ah ha! Why didn’t I think of that before? Pick your fabric first, THEN match the paint! They are very pretty chairs! That cheerful yellow is a huge color for this season – I see it everywhere! So just tell your husband that you are on trend. =0)
