Latest Craigslist Score & ALL My Dining Room Chairs



Hi friends, hope you had a great weekend.
If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my latest Craigslist score that I
 picked up on Friday. I was smitten with the shape on these vintage gems. I would
 have passed since the last thing I need is a FOURTH set of dining room chairs,    
(yes, it's true, they're stacked to the ceiling in my basement with my other Craigslist addiction!)
 but the price was crazy ~ $15 for all five! I couldn't resist.

while I was vacationing.  I did paint them black, I think I forgot to show you.
I could never part with this classic style.     


I'm sure you've forgotten all about these mid-century treasures that were a steal
a couple of years ago. I sanded and primed them and stalled out trying to decide on
 a color and upholstery. I still love the 40" height and sexy backside. :)  
I've never seen anything like them, so they're keepers.    



And then I have the vintage set you've seen for the last few years with a couple
different fabrics. The mix of styles with my farm table and  open style backs are
too perfect too give up. 


I know it's probably more than I need, haha, but what's a girl to do?
Do you have a favorite?

$15!!! I bow down to you. Love them and all your others!

Love all your chairs, and can't say which is my favorite!!
Could you please tell us about your farmhouse table? Love it, too!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Love your new find! The tricky thing about older chairs is finding a set that's pretty AND sturdy. They're so creaky and wobbly most of the time! And, I'll never understand why they come in sets of 5 so often... 4 or 6 makes so much more sense!

You are hilarious! I kind of have a chair addiction as well! I am a sucker for unusual chairs! Sounds like you need a barn sale!! I like the mixed set you have around your table now!!

So jealous! I can't pass up a good chair and these are wonderful. I have been hoping to score something similar for our own dining room.

Mountain Mama said...

Oh my gosh, where do you store them all? I don't think I can pick a favorite - they are all lovely in their own way!

Vel Criste said...

WOW! You are such a lucky lady!!! Love them all, but I must say my fave among them is your faux bamboo ones! Wish to have some someday!

SHERRY HART said...

You have me beat girl....I only have 2 but if I had more storage space......oh boy it could get ugly:)

Elizabeth@ Pine Cones and Acorns said...

Wow! These chairs are fabulous, every set.

Ivy Lane said...

I love the mid century chairs! I would paint them a cool colour and use leather on the seats... swoon

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

I tried to comment on this post the other day but couldn't get it to publish. THIS is why I text you photos of chairs and ask yay or nay. Because you have vision!!!! This is a crazy awesome score - $15?!!!! With those beautiful backs?? For the millionth time I wish you lived next door to me. We could have such fun!
