Wicker chair make over

I love the white on white look when it comes to interior design. I've bought a big pot of mat paint and have painted all manner of things around the house.
Picture frames, coffee tables, storage boxes and dining room chairs have not escaped a quick sanding and a coat of paint. My husband thinks if he closes his eyes for 5 minutes on the couch I am liable to paint him white as well. I am really tempted.
My most recent make over was this wicker chair that I purchased from my local op shop for a few dollars.
It was a dark green colour that didn't really go with my new look or anything else for that matter but I loved the style and the condition was very good.
Out came my much used pot of paint and this is the result.
I made a cute cushion using a gorgeous black and white cherry blossom fabric which I have been saving for just the right job.
The picture frame and side table are some of the other finds that have been made over and I'm really pleased with the result.
