Grey Cane Back Dining Chairs


These vintage cane back dining chairs came from a community yard sale.  I was just heading back to my car, after an unsuccessful visit to the community sale, when I saw a woman carry one of these chairs out to her front yard.  I stopped her immediately and purchased the four chairs for a very good deal!


The chairs looked similar to the first set of cane chairs that I fixed up here.  They were old and dirty with flaking paint covering up their beautiful bones.


The gold velvet upholstery is indicative of the era from whence they came.




I used a mixture of about 50/50 Paris Grey and Country Grey Chalk Paint to create a soft, pale grey hue for these chairs.  

I love the wooden details above the caning on these dining chairs.


I dry brushed some Old White Chalk Paint over the appliques and along the edges of the chairs and then distressed them with 220 grit sandpaper.



Fortunately, the cane backs were all in flawless condition.


I reupholstered the seat cushions with a charcoal grey and white striped, hemp linen fabric.

Hi Amanda,

Your grey caned chairs are just exquisite! Caning is such a skill these days and I love how you have refinished these chairs. I'm visiting from Featherend Nest Friday and hope you will stop by for a visit.
