A touch of color.
A bit of shape.
And a place to perch.
They're the total package.
While I'd really love to furnish my home with chairs like these:
Reality finds us sitting upon something more like this ($1 each on the side of the road):
So when I found these nuggets on Craigslist for $75 for the pair, I pounced.
Now I have to decide whether to A: paint the upholstery (gasp) like they did here, B: tear them all apart and hope they go back together better than the Humpty Dumpties that they are. Or C: just throw a couple of pillows on them and pretend people don't notice how old the upholstry is or how someone in their past used a brown marker to color in the faded arms.
Right now "C" is winning. Maybe I'll be inspired soon or inherit some upholstering tools. For now, they hold sitting people - (the bar is obviously set very high) and fill up a corner of the Great Room nicely. Any guesses on how old my kiddos will be when these finally get a facelift? Hopefully they'll still live at home.
