I had this nice vintage chair I picked up a while ago. My plans to fix, paint, and reupholster it, never ended up happening. My husband had recently been using the chair at his desk. Once I decided I didn’t want to makeover the chair, I thought to re-purpose it instead. I have a lot of “fashion” jewelry that I forget I have, because I don’t see it. One day, I looked at the caning on the chair and thought it would be the perfect way to display my earrings.
I sawed off the back of the chair and sanded down the rough area at the severing point. Then she was ready for painting.
I ended up selecting two shades of purple: Henrietta and Antoinette. I also used some Old White I already had, for some detailing. Adding clear then dark wax on top of these beautiful shades, would create the look of a patina and tone down a little bit of the brightness.
These two ceramic hooks, add interest and a nice contrast because they are a stark white color. Both can be purchased at Anthropologie. In addition to making the perfect loop to my earring hooks, the caning made it very easy to attach my animal hooks.
