My Latest Craigslist Score!


I've been scouring Craigslist for some sort of chairs for our deck that we could
 easily pull out for extra seating when we had larger groups of friends or family over.
I wasn't having any luck, but I wasn't willing to give up on my criteria.

1 - Stylish
2 - Comfortable
3 - Easy to Store

I loved this look I noticed on Copy Cat Chic a few days ago (via Emily Henderson on Facebook)
and it dawned on me that the Bamboo Director's Chairs I'd been waffling about could
 easily be made over with new covers! 
Don't the classic black and white stripes take these up a notch? So crisp and summery.

I lucked out that they were still available!
Vintage Bamboo Director's Chairs by Telescope 
I purchased four of them for a steal - $70!  
They're amazing ~ heavy duty, comfortable, in perfect condition and they fold up
nice and compact for storing during the winter. Oh, and the stylish bamboo!!! :)
The covers should be a slam-dunk
 sewing project, I just need to find the perfect striped fabric. 


Have you guys scored anything great on Craigslist lately?

Fantastic Bergere chairs - I watched the listing for so long; she posted them 3 times before I actually made up my mind. So glad I did they look great and will be even better reupholstered.
