A few weeks ago while I was out browsing yard sales I came across what could only be characterized as an old chair graveyard. There were dozens of them, broken, mangled and set out to rot. I would guess that they were pretty old and I loved the vintage appeal of them. I decided that I would save three of them from the garbage dump (even though I wish I could have saved them all, they all just wouldn’t fit in the back of my momma van).
|My chairs, sitting where I found them in the chair graveyard.|
The chairs were decrepit. They were missing their seats and needing of a good wash down. But that didn’t scare me off. The first thing we did on our way home was stop by a Do It Yourself car wash and gave them a bath. When I washed away the dirt I found gorgeous metal brackets on the corners. Score! These chairs reminded me of something country chic… and so my mind started turning. . .
