While yard saling with my girls on Saturday, we spotted a wicker rocking chair. I just about ran the car into a pole to get to it. And would you believe it was only $5?! It was natural wicker color with dark green trim. So what. Paint will fix that.
After a couple of days, I thought I'd check craigslist to see if I could find another one. And would you believe I did? Just a short drive and $30 later, it was mine. (I didn't want to talk her down to $5, but I should have) It was already white but needed repainting.
Then the next day I found some chair cushions at Walmart on clearance for $8.50 each.
Let's do the math, shall we?
Wicker chair: $5
Wicker chair: $30
Paint: Free, it was left here by the previous owners
The cushion has to be squeezed in to fit the smaller chair, but it's fine.
I'll show you what else I've been painting tomorrow.
