Have a Seat
Vintage lawn chairs for my fire pit area have been on my wish list forever but I never have found any that said "buy me", then I discovered they are being reproduced. The color and the $37.97 price tag SHOUTED "buy me"! They are not the quality of vintage ones, don't have real powder-coat finish and assembly was required. Assembly was daunting and fortunately, it was the LAST one that was really stubborn or the other three might still be sitting in the boxes! The company is called Jack Post if you are interested. Now that they are in place, I am delighted with them. Much better than the white plastic ones and these legs won't sink in to the ground and buck you off.
I have also been on the hunt for kitchen chairs. I bought my table and chairs as a set about 10 years ago and have never liked the chairs. They have way too big a footprint for my tiny house. I spotted these at The Bins yesterday. They are sturdy and I like the unusual design of the backs. The upholstery on the seats is beyond ugly but that is an easy fix. I happened to spot the drape on the same day so I am considering using that as the replacement. I have to let it steep a while.
This project will have to wait a couple weeks since I am now on the count-down to the antique mall space. I am mostly finished auditioning in the shelves and will begin pricing next. Photos coming soon!
