The other day, I made a cry for help on my facebook page.
"If anyone has an old set of chairs they are looking to get rid of, please send a pic." Also knowing that no one truly understands the meaning of what I find a treasure, I also said, " If you think they are crappy, I will probably like them."
Well later that day a dear friend of mine sent me a photo via cellphone of some crappy old chairs at a garage sale.
So my hubby and a co-worker rush to the location to find 5 beat up and cracked old chairs for $30.00. My hubby then calls me and says, "You don't want these they are a mess, but I think I can get them for less. "
So....here is my thought process. Hmmmm....1. He thinks there crap which means I will probably love them, 2. If they are crap, I can use them in a garden and set plants on them, 3. I can put them curb side and they will be gone in 5 minutes.
So needless to say they are mine, all five of these perfectly imperfect chairs for a mere 15.00!!!
Now my dilemma, to paint or not to paint.
Those adorable pillow on the wicker couch were made by my dear friend Tami at:
And my much loved Antique table, was a Mother's Day gift this year from my boy's.
So this is proof that patience can pay off!
