Here are a few ideas:

Faux bamboo chair had caning in disrepair. Reupholstered seat with a skirt and a new upholstered back turned this into a cute little chair. – Southern living

Barrel back chair had water damage and split wood at the seams, even with all that it had an airy feel. With some patching and repairing of the frame, some creamy white paint and new velvet fabric makes this a great accent. – Southern Living


This rocker was in a pile to be set on fire. It was made of good solid wood and just needed a home. New paint and upholstery turned this from trash to a little girl’s treasure in her cottage style bedroom. – Lisa’s Creative Designs
