ikea wicker chair makeover

If you follow me on instagram or facebook, you got a sneak peek of this over the weekend….

At a recent Ikea excursion, I picked up this simple wicker chair with the intent of gussying it up a bit for our living room.

I got it home and, while trying to decide on a color for it, decided on a trend double-whammy-pantone’s color of the year, emerald green, for the chair and dip dyed legs in navy blue.

Now, you all know me-I tend to steer clear of the latest and greatest trends, but I wanted this piece to be fun, and it’ll be so easy to repaint once I get tired of the color scheme.

For now, though, I love the pop of color and extra seating it gives the space.

Tell me, what’s the last trend you embraced for your home?
