My relationship with Craiglist lately has been looking up. He does make for a touch-and-go sort of relationship. Don't you just hate those guys?
We sold a few things in the last month or so....spare dining table, some old unworn golf shoes that Freddie had (and had no idea to whom they belonged), extra dining chairs. We're putting that money towards a new purchase for our dining room, which is being repurposed. Stay tuned.
I did, however, find a few diamonds in the rough recently. I was poking around on the antiques board and came across some pretty chairs.
The lady who sold them to me had been cleaning out her barn and found these. The best part? She listed one for $40 (and I did not intend to pay that much). So, when I met her to check them out, she brought both and offered both to me for $25. Sold and score! Apparently, she did not want to lug one or both of them back home with her. ; )
She called them a harp and lyre chair, which I'll have to investigate and research. I love the shapes and they are in good condition. One will go in my repurposed dining room and the other? Perhaps my daughter's big girl room-to-be.
I'm excited to facelift these!
