Dining Room Chairs

Yesterday I was ecstatic as I drove home with my newly acquired dining room chairs!!

They might be hideous now, but I have great plans for these four chairs (plus two others that I got for free last year).  I've been on the hunt for dining room seating since we moved into our house and it's been discouraging to find that chairs are expensive.  And the chairs that I like are very expensive.  Parsons chairs were always my favorites as I was searching for what would be the best in our home, but the cheapest ones I could find were about $100 each.  Now I have six, all for only $60!  Yes, it's going to take some time to tear off the old fabric and recover them, but it's worth it to me to have chairs that I will love. 

Have you scored any exciting CL or yard sale purchases lately?


  1. I can't wait to see what you do with these! Maybe I will go to the thrift store today to peruse and see if I am inspired...

  2. Do slipcovers. That way you can wash them when your sweet little darlings spill on them. =)

  3. So glad you found the chairs you've been looking for! And I am eager to see the transformation and the fabric you use! What a fun project!


I would love to get your feedback on any post! Comments make my day, and I will do my best to get back with you as soon as I can. Thanks!
