Here are my big finds from the day...chairs for our dining area!!
Grand total for all three chairs...drumroll please...$39.00! The two matching chairs were $24.00 at 2nd Avenue Value Store. And the arm chair was $15.00 at Impact Thrift Store.
Now for the paint...decisions decisions. I have decided that I'm going to paint all three chairs and the bench the same color. It will just take me forever to decide on a color. I'm thinking a dark, rich blue - suggestions on a color welcomed! I'm also going to recover the seat of the arm chair. You probably can't tell from the picture but there is a pretty sweet vinyl protective covering over the seat right now.
What a day...we all had such a different perspective on our thrift finds, which is what made the day so much fun. I think at one point I stopped asking people "what do you think you'll do with that?" because I knew they would make it into something spectacular that I'll just have to wait to see. And we even have some potential spots lined up for our next thrifting event - I can't wait! The day wouldn't be complete without a little lunch and chit-chat, goodie bags, storytelling, technology tips, and one last thrifting stop at Salvation Army.
