my recent chair finds

I found these set of chairs about a month ago and I know they won't go with the rest of my room decor on the main floor or in the basement but I bought them anyway.  If you must know I am a chair fiend; modern, industrial, early american, retro or just plain weirdo (interesting), I really don't care I love all old chairs equally.  So I found these olive green chairs at the auction and was amazed at their condition for being old and all,  the original upholstery are all intact, free from tears or any stains and the wood is just gorgeous, I had hubby stained them in dark mahogany and they turned out beautiful.  They are also very comfortable to sit on and so well made.
Anyhow, as with furniture and in this case chairs, it always takes longer to list them for the fact that they're big and a challenge to photograph and also the notion of letting them go is enough good reason to procrastinate listing.  I wish I have a big house to accomodate all the pretty chairs I come accross with on my many auction trips (sigh).

I was able to get some decent shots of them yesterday and they are now listed in the shop!

  6. alex - I mostly used Fedex with smaller chairs or footstools, with bigger ones I used Greyhound and it's very easy.

    Sixballoons - you made a great decision to get the blue chair, it's beautiful!
