    I'd like to spray paint my antique oak chairs with cane seating. Will the paint hold on the caning? Thanks for your help!

    I used a spray version of KILZ, a base coat, before painting the cane. It worked like a charm.

    dear Sara, I am about to paint my wooden kitchen table in blue :) Before you apply poly, what type of paint did you use on the chairs? Is the type of paint important....or is it just important to seal the paint? I have this image of thecolor "bleeding" after i use poly....pls help

    I have no idea what they're named... but they look like a cane back Parson's chair to me.

    Thanks for your question!

These cane chairs were given new life with red paint and inexpensive fabric to dress up the seating. If you're afraid of red overload, pair it with black and white to tame the powerful effects of red.Tip: When sourcing cane chairs, be sure the woven back and bottom are in good condition. If the cane weaving is worn or torn, it will cost you to have it repaired, meaning it may no longer be as budget friendly as you thought.

7. Cause a stir with red. I'm not really a fan of red, but I do understand how effective it is in causing a commotion. If you want to be provocative with a chair, use red. Red is especially fun in a dining room, where it is said to increase appetite.Get the how-to on this DIY chair project

11. Stain fabric with tea for a unique look. Give fabric for any of your projects a vintage look by soaking it in a bucket filled with hot steeped tea (the more bags you use, the deeper the stain) for several hours.Get the full tutorial for these tea-stained and painted chairs
