These two chairs are my most favorite garage sale find ever. I found them in a swanky neighborhood on Indy's north side a while back. I almost didn't stop at the sale because it seems like the fancier the house the worse the garage sale. Anyone else ever notice that?
I saw the chairs right away, but thought the price tag said $50 - it didn't. It said $5. As soon as I had the price cleared up, I claimed them as mine. The owner told me that they are from the law library at University of Michigan. Being a Michigander myself, I knew the chairs had been waiting for me.
This picture is a little old, but I still have the same mish-mash of non-matching chairs. We've changed out the table to a dark pine table with a pedestal. I'd really like to paint everything this summer, but I don't know that I really have time for that. I guess it'll depend on Xavier and if he goes back to being a baby that sleeps... We've have a sleepless couple of months lately. So, stay tuned. If I get around to painting everything, I post photos! What color should I paint? I'm thinking white or cream table and maybe a contrasting color for the chairs?
We're going to be holding our own garage sale this coming weekend. i'm considering sell my china cabinet back there because the tiny dining area is pretty crowded with the little boys and all... Should I hold on to it? Should paint that too? Maybe turquoise? Maybe red?
