 I mean, nothing beats Red Egg for the perfect lacquered woven piece- hands down, one of my personal go-tos.  But if it doesn't fit your budget, this is a close facsimile. God I love my can of turquoise spray paint........... And ebay, on the rare occasion I can get a deal.

Hi Megan, I'm loving that colour too. Yep, Ebay can be so, so satisfying. Will stop by that link now. Pruxxx

I love your post! I am one of those who is total in favor of "transformations & imitations" in a budget!

Good luck painting your chair!
