Chairs Orange to Dreamy







I really like how these chairs came out...i went to a fantastic Estate sale this weekend Friday.

A house that had been used as storage by 2 eccentric women that lived in this town over 25 yrs and were very wealthy and well traveled.. They actually lived in a Inn in town and used this house to store all their treasures from their travels... Well me and my friend and partner at the shop.. stood in line early ..and were one of the first...I was sooo excited to see all the amazing things there ...you know heart palpitations, hot flash..ect..... There were alot of dealers and so you had to choose quickly or else..if you snooze you lose!....I passed these chairs all Friday cus there were so full of things and the bright orange and leopard orange print.. well ....My partner said you could refinish those chairs....they were $5. ea!... well after I took all my stuff home i thought about it and wondered if they would be there the next day....surely someone would see the potential.....well they were!! Their ugliness was my luck...no one wanted them...so here they are, they will be in my booth this week all 4 chairs....I really like them!

Oh, Marlene, those chairs turned out beautiful! I love that floral fabric. One of these days, I need a tour of your fabric bin!

Wow, you scored! And after putting your touch on them, they are just darling. I will have to make a trip to Cayucos to see your booth sometime (In my not so spare time:)
