(These 70's horn chairs cost thousands of dollars.)
I took black and brown spray paint and began to cover the chair, front and back using the black at the rattan "knots" and the brown between the knots.
Not having any other spray can colors on hand, I took to my acrylic paints.
I love a fat "makeup" brush to brush on color, but fingers worked best. I added gold, orange and a chestnut color between the knots, smearing it all together with my fingers.
Possible finished product....I'm 'marinating' on it for a day or two. The seat cushion is not working for me.
Before I design a new cushion, I need to # 1 have a plan as to wear I'll put the chair, #2 pick out a fabric #3 make or have a pro make a cushion cover. I'll post pictures when that is done. Not sure if I want to go more "colorful" with higher and lower highlights, so I'm going to live with it a bit til I declare it's "done"!
I had several sessions adding more color since it was so deceptive bringing it indoors where it looked so dark. Here it is now with more highlights added:
