On the way home from Home Depot this morning, we decided to take a different route. Where I live, there aren’t usually many garage sales, but I decided to take a chance.
I saw the neon green sign that said “Big Big Big Garage sale <----“ so we turned left. Boy am I glad we did. For $5 a piece I found these:
A DIYers dream!! I have been meaning to get inexpensive dining room chairs to last until I possibly move. I was going to get them from IKEA for $20 a piece. Then we found these. I had to go to the ATM to take $20 out and I only needed 4. When we came back she said to take all 5 in case one had more problems or whatever. Fine! We loaded them in the car and took them home.
(don't mind the dirt outside, we are renovating outside too and have lots of bags of donations waiting for pick up)
I’m so excited!!
Some of the pads are still covered in plastic. Clearly that will be removed and new fabric put on.
Here is a chair that I have been
hoarding keeping around for a while. It was my grandmothers chair that she used at her desk. I won’t part with it. Now I can paint and recover all six and they almost will look like a set.
Close enough for me. We have a small table that seats 4, for now. When we move I’ll get a table that matches, for 6 and be all set. I’m soooo excited.
**Now here is my dilemma. What fabric do I use?? I want a print, something nice, but nothing too bright. I’m soooooo confused on what color scheme to go with. If you have suggestions or links to great fabrics, PLEASE leave them in the comments.**Linking up to some of these great parties!
