Twintage: Toy Hanging Chair Redo

April 6, 2013

Toy Hanging Chair Redo

My fantastic sister found another thrifted treasure for Norah-Leigh.  A toy hanging rattan egg chair, it's the perfect seating for some of Norah's little friends. 

The chair was screaming to be painted, I wanted something fun but subtle. I decided on a gold metallic spray paint. Probably the quickest spray paint project ever, the only down side was the amount of paint that was waisted due to the gaps in the wood. I applied two coats, and was done well before Norah woke up from her nap. 

This little chair is very light, and the curious hands of a 17 month old could destroying it within minutes, so for now it will have to stay out of her reach. Just because she can't play with it doesn't mean I can't, right!

I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. In this picture it's hanging from a plant hook in my office. Eventually it will make it's way to Norah's room.

I just love a simple project.
