It’s stealing the spotlight in the living room. It’s replacing the iron on the patio. It’s even invading the nursery. Rattan furniture is coming back with a big bang. Yes, this trend is a vintage classic that’s happy to be back in your home. It’s pale arms and legs provide a simple and affordable way to incorporate nature into any room. Check out these 11 ways to make the most of this rattan trend. When you’re searching for those perfect rattan pieces to add to your place, don’t forget to go look over the thrift stores. There are many vintage pieces to be found and some of the best and most unique ones are buried under dusty rugs and clouded mirrors. Plus, you’ll probably save money buy choosing an antique over new.
Once you cut the board to size, set the mirror in the middle and measure and cut the trim pieces. Then stain each piece except for the detailed trim pieces. You may need to sand them first if the wood is treated. Leave them to dry and during this time spray paint the remaining trim pieces white. Only do one coat. Then attach the mirror to the board with wood glue, add the trim pieces and enjoy. A different design can feature a simple frame with straight cuts. You can build it yourself or use one you already have. If you choose the first option, secure the boards together with screws and make some holes for carriage bolts. Then stain the frame and seal it. Allow it to dry. To attach the mirror to the frame, use a picture hanger and basic mirror hooks.
Visually enthralling? Most definitely. Practical? Perhaps…perhaps not. To call Knibb’s pieces mere tables would be silly. They are the textbook definition of art: Something that is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.
Not happy with the way your old vanity stool looks now? How about a makeover. You can rejuvenate its design with some new upholstery or paint and you can even change the style completely. So remove the cushion top from the base and then use faux fur to wrap the stool. After you’ve covered the top, you can spray paint the base using your favorite color. Put the stool back together and you’re done.
