Thrifted Wicker Chair

Thrifted wicker chair makeover -

It’s hard not to pick up every cute piece of furniture when you go thrifting. That is maybe why my garage is filled an embarassing amount with furniture I need to sell or find a place for in our home. oops. But when I saw this wicker chair I knew I had to grab it. I had been eyeing a certain wicker chair at pier one for some time now for our living room. Well it was around $200 & you know what? I change my mind too often to spend that on a wicker chair. As I was walking through our local thrift store I spotted this wicker chair & the owner told me it was from pier one. Even though it didn’t have a cushion and has a few damaged spots, I knew this baby was mine, & all for less than $15! So in my eyes I really saved $185, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

I had to purchase a cushion from Pier one {which cost be more than the chair at almost $30!} but it was worth having a lovely neutral cushion that fits the chair perfectly. & this cushion matches the cushions I used in our dining room for the barstool & bench makeovers as well.  The pom blanket was purchased at meijer a few years ago & the burlap pillow is from Belk recently. There is still minor damage on the chair that I need to fix, but I will post on that later.

& before the wicker chair, there was this retro little black beauty. This was a while back before our DIY rustic tv console too. I love this little retro chair, but I needed some change.

This chair is so cozy let me tell you, and I think it fits right in with our white furniture in the living room. I need to find a colorful pillow for the chair, but for now it’s just perfect the way it is. What do you think of my new thrifted wicker chair? I still have some work to do on it, like touching up some damaged spots and trimming some frayed areas, but more on that later. Leave a comment below or find me on Facebook or Instagram to chat!

    Liz, I found a wicker chair out in someones trash a few weeks ago. It was originally black, but it is very weathered. I washed it with my hose and let it dry. There is a place I need to fix on the leg, but it is in moderately good condition. I plan on painting it (not sure what color yet) that will depend on where I plan on putting it. I was so EXCITED when I found it. Your post has been inspirational! Thanks.

  8. I love it! I actually have a similar wicker chair from Pier One that I used to have on our front porch, but now just sits in the basement. You have inspired me to bring her up and add a cushion!

  9. What a great find and it looks so inviting with the cushion, pillow and throw!!
    Have a good day!!

  10. love it! it has such a great shape!

    It looks great! Now I wish I had left my wicker chair natural that I recently spray painted white—-mine was a $15 garage sale grab!

  12. Excellent find my friend!! There’s no way I would have left without it either!!

  13. Love the new chair! It looks great!

  14. So pretty! I love how it looks. Great natural texture.

  15. It’s beautiful! Love how you dressed it up. Also love how you determined how much $$ you saved. I love that kind of math–I’m SO with you. Unfortunately my husband never seems to appreciate it :)

  16. I also picked up a Pier One chair for $5. I stained it and made a cushion and have it for sale, but really wouldn’t mind if it doesn’t so I could bring it home. Check it out if you would like at my blog under the post called “Kona”.

  25. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try
    to get the hang of it!

  26. I found the same exact chair at my local thrift shop for $12 bucks!!! and in perfect condition. I even left the store and hit a u turn to go back and get it. I didn’t know it was from pier one until coming across your page. I painted mine a poppy red and it looks amazing!
