Why don't you: add colour with cane?

I have recently noticed a flood of typically daggy cane furniture on offer on Canberra's Dola auction site, op shops and revolve, usually with appalling fabric upholstered cushions, and it has inspired me to show you how we can update the look. Easy to DIY... paint it, and add some adorable fabric... these pieces will add a splash of colour and interest to a corner of your room this weekend...

Don't be shy with red...and team it with some cute fabric. Not Cane, but a similar look can be achieved with cane.

Check out the DOLA auctions here (love the bedheads - perfect in a little girl's bedroom in red or an adult bedroom in apple green or yellow), and get your fabric at Addicted to Fabric, Phillip. Lovely!
