Today is darn cold, gray and damp. Even so, DH (Dear Hubby, Dang Hubby,
whichever is appropriate at the time, lol) was determined to go the open year round
Flea Market. It wasn't full, but there are always plenty of hardy vendors set up.
We've been looking for 4 matching chairs for our dining room table.
Actually looking for Heywood Wakefield chairs, but they are always
incredibly expensive - no matter what condition we find them in.
He spied these chairs at the Flea.
Pretty cool, huh? They are dated 1960. One chair still has
a label that gives an order number and reads: 399 of 406.
A rather large order, right?
They are also marked, Seat: Stoneville teal, Finish: Natural.
DH (Dear, in this case) realized they were made for commercial use.
Think of yourself sitting in one of these chairs in a deli or breakfast place
many moons ago. They are really heavy...but solid & sturdy in a chair is a good thing.
DH needs to clean the wood and spruce them up a bit.
I need to look for some great fabric to recover them.
They're not Wakefield and never will be, but they go well with our
blonde dining room furniture and I think they look pretty darn good already.
(Nothing done to them yet, but of course I made him place them around the
table just to see!)
OH~Forgot about this being a thrifty post.
DH said: I paid $12.
I said: $12 a chair isn't bad since you found 4 matching.
DH said: No, I paid $12 for all 4! The guy said I could have them for $3 a chair.
BINGO! Now that's a thrifty find.
DH did great, didn't he? Yup, he's a keeper. For lots of other reasons too.
Remember the Daffodils that were pushing up through the snow in January?
Well, they survived and this is them last week when we got our last round of sleet & snow.
This is them today. They are really tough, and quite the role model for
helping me get through my little procedure. Thanks Daffs!
& THANK YOU dear blogger friends for all the support you offered
me last week....you definitely helped me through.
