Do you remember my other ladder back chairs that I found on craigslist? Well, since I had my farm table, I wanted some prim looking ladder back chairs to go with my table. I found two awhile back and re-finished them. I loved the way that they turned out, but I still needed more. So, I have been searching craigslist to see if I could find some more. Well, after many months of searching for more ladder back chairs…. I found more!! I was so excited to find some more. Of course they don’t match the others exactly, but I can put these on the sides of the table and the other two at the ends of the table. The fiber rush seats are not in that great of shape, but within time I am hoping to have them re-finished. I didn’t have a clue as to how expensive it was to re-finish the seats, but it is quite expensive. They will re-finish the seats, but they charge by the inch and if you think about it…. the seating has to be sturdy enough to hold someone so think about how many inches they would need to make it sturdy enough. Yep, that is alot of inches (lol). Anyway, I am going to re-finish my new chairs in black of course so they match the other two and I will just simply cover the seats up with some prim chair pads until I can get them re-done. So, are you ready to see my ladder back chairs? I was definitely pleased with my find, but just wish they were in a little better shape. I guess after I finish them…. they will look ALOT better. Anyway, here are the chairs.
Don’t you love them? Can you imagine them re-finished in black? They will be prim perfect!! Here is a closer look.
As you can see….. the chairs on the right are the ones in worse shape, but the ones on the left can definitely be lived with. So, are you ready to hear about my
GREAT, WONDERFUL, EXCELLENT deal? Hold on to your hats because if I thought it was a good deal then I am sure you will as well. I purchased all 4 ladder back chairs for a total of $30.00. Did you hear me? Yep, I said $30.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was very pleased myself. The gentleman that I purchased them from actually buys items at auctions and then re-sells them. He had a whole barn full of items. Of course some items were better then others, but he had quite a few nice goodies to say the least.
I also wanted to let you all know that we have been working long and hard hours to get Mom settled into her home. She is settled, but we are slowly working on decorating every corner and every inch of every room. We thought it would easy, but when you have so many boxes full of prim goodies……well, it can tend to be overwhelming to say the least. The good news is that we have some pictures that we would like to share with you. So, if you are ready to see them, then we are ready to share them…..tomorrow! Did you actually think it would be today? You silly girls!! (lol). So, be sure to be watching my blog tomorrow for some prim goodness displayed in Mom’s new home.
Trust me ~ you won’t be disappointed.
Until Next Time ~ Blessings, Lisa
