Ok, I'm rambling... The point is I finally started looking on Craig's list for furniture. To my great surprise I found out it's a GOLD MINE! I know I'm the last to know. I knew I just didn't want to put in the time. Today I'm so glad I did because we landed ourselves a great deal! Eight cane back Louis dining chairs for $900! There were 14 of them but we had no idea what we would do with 14 so we settled for 8. These chairs are at least worth $250 each. I'm so happy!!
The owner had just refinished them last year (stain guard and all). The fabric isn't my favourite but it will certainly do for the first few years or until I can refinish it myself or afford someone else to do it. How much would each chair cost to refinish (minus the fabric)?
Now it's time to find a dining table. We want something like a harvest table or something that will age well. We plan on having kids one day and I want them to be able to colour, draw and do crafts at the kitchen table. Nothing high maintenance.
Have a great day!!!
