Sometimes you strike gold....
.....Op Shop Gold that is.
I've been wanting to buy vintage chairs for my dining table for the loooooongest time. I've never ever ever found a large affordable matching set.
So you can imagine my surprise when my sister and I walked into the oppy a couple of weeks ago and spotted these gems. A matching set of eight vintage wooden dining chairs, in excellent condition.
But the best bit.... they were only $10 each. You could have knocked me down with a feather!
I think they've had a previous life in a school art classroom.
They all have various splashes of coloured paint, pencil, and pastel. I think it adds to the character.
The only problem with this room of course is that there's just waaaay too much wood. The wall unit was purchased for my previous house. It matched perfectly there, but now I wish it was painted white.
I need to make myself a Go Granny Cotton Canvas tablecloth to brighten it up a bit... off to add it to the big list!
