We found 2 of these chairs on the curb one night on the way to dinner at our friends’ place. It was about 6 or 7 years ago and they have been in our basement since. My husband and I toyed with the idea of reupholstering them ourselves but it is not a hobby for the dust mite allergic. Now that we are moving from our very small apartment into a house, we finally got them restored and reupholstered.
I also found a midcentury tile topped teak side table on the curb that I have since put in between the chairs. This is basically the only furniture in the new place so far.
And Before Again:
Surprising thing I have enjoyed about the process of moving # 1 = getting rid of STUFF. As you may recall, I have trouble with stuff, so weeding out has been freeing. And yet, as I have been tossing junk at the thrift store as fast as I can, a steady stash of new treasures has been flowing into the garage.
Can I just say that I never thought I would post a photo of our garage on here.
Check out the door someone put on the curb! It has it’s original door knob and handle and it’s just beautiful. I have plans for this door in my new craft room. Thrifted green chair also headed to the craft room, I have already cut off the skirt and vacuumed round 1 of the cat hair off it. Peeking out from the back are some red lockers mined from Craigslist that we’re going to use in the entryway. Can you see the Lucite bar cart or is it like Wonder Woman’s plane? I got the baby scale and the chalk board at the same yard sale. I think I got them both for 5 dollars. The baby scale may make an appearance in the bathroom and the chalkboard either in the kitchen or rec room. In the trash bag is a vintage croquet set I got at auction in NC for CHEAP! We brought it to the new house last night for a BBQ and I heard myself telling the children, “Those are not HAMMERS!” as they used the mallets to beat the yard. Maybe they will be tucked away on the porch or I’ll put my wine down, stop talking with my friends, get up off my butt and show them how to actually play the game. One or the other…
So stick with me, this is probably going to turn into a house blog for a spell here!
