THRIFTY FIND: ONLY $2.99!

Posted by Lori~
While thrifting in little town, ND I found A GEM!  A STEAL!  SOMETHING THAT I COULDN’T PASS UP!
Check out this pair!  ONLY $2.99 per chair! 
They are worn...but SUPER COMFORTABLE!

The tufting is beautiful, the wood is FAB, and my decorator friend Reagen refers to the chair style as Grandma Chic!
So…here’s the plan.  I bought a chair and my friend Reagen bought a chair.  When little town, ND weather warms up—we have plans…BIG PLANS!
And the plan is the chairs will look COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. 
Reagen’s plans include a limed oak finish on the wood, chocolate velvet fabric, and pewter nail head trim.

Reagen's Chair!
My chair will be painted shiny bright white with fabric in black, white, gray, and/or orange.  I haven’t found the fabric yet…but I will be on the lookout for the perfect fabric.  And of course the perfect deal!  I hope to complete the project for under $25.00!  YIPEE!

My Chair!
Of course…when this project is complete…there will be a future post reveal!  GET READY!
On another note…check out this photo from the weekend!  We took on a big house project that will equal BIG SAVINGS!  More on this later!

Steve is covered in a MESS!

THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS! And you will get to see them when I FINALLY GET THEM DONE!

They were purchased at the Salvation Armory and I couldn't BELIEVE IT! A STEAL!

Oops! Never mind!
Just discovered the location. This is my first time here, so I didn't realize how organized you are! Keep up the challenge!
