TGITF Friends! I am so excited about today's feature--these Vintage chairs I rescued from my favorite thrift store for $8 each! When I updated my dining room several months ago, I sold the two bulky parson chairs that were at each end of my table. Since then, I have been holding out for just the right chairs. More than once, I was tempted and almost bought something I liked but didn't love. As is often the case, I am so glad I waited because these I truly, madly love!
My favorite local thrift was expanding to a second location across the street from the original. I already had plans to go to their grand re-opening sale but when I saw these chairs and their price tags on their Facebook page the night before, I decided to be there when the store opened. I was first in line, and my local blogging buddy Audrey was right behind me! We chatted a few minutes until the store opened.
When the doors opened, I spied them right away. There were five but I only needed two. I had one hand on each of my picks when a rather grumpy gentleman informed me that he needed all five. Nothing doing--I was the early bird, after all! I gripped my chairs a little tighter, smiled sweetly and stated firmly, that I already picked my two. He wasn't too happy...but that didn't dampen my spirits!
I'm sure you have guessed a makeover is in progress. Here, I have removed the cushions and my chairs are ready to be transformed. By the way, you won't believe what I used to recover the cushions--can you envision the loveliness? Be sure to come back Sunday to see them revealed!
