I Finally Have Chairs!

Late last year I bought a secondhand table for about $70 and sold my old set for $50, there was just one problem... the old set included 6 chairs and I had only bought a table! Well, this weekend I solved that problem! In a little second hand shop in Nuriootpa I found a set of four chairs and they were exactly what I was looking for; wooden pressed back chairs with a beautiful design on them. I paid $120 for all four, they need a bit of work but I am very happy with them. It's hard to tell from the photos but they are painted and I am thinking that I will repaint them a creamy white and make some cushions for them out of grain of coffee sacks... I'll keep you posted.
One of the chairs, this one has some damage - missing or replacement supports

You can see the design on the pressed back also where some of the paint is wearing off

Two of the four have a design made from holes on the seat!

All four, side by side, Tribbles investigates!

Tribbles decides she approves!
