A couple of years ago I picked up two yellow wood chairs at a local thrift store. I was actually at the store to donate things. I went around back to the area to drop off larger items and there was a truck in front of me donating items as well. The last two thing he hauled off his truck were these two chairs. They were filthy but, I instantly knew I wanted them!
As soon as the guy pulled away, I raced up to the owner and said I wanted to buy the two chairs. She said that she hadn’t even inventoried or cleaned them yet. I said I would take them as is and just load them into my truck once I got all of my donation stuff out of there. I asked what she wanted for the two. After a little thinking on her part, she sold the two for $12.00. Woohoo!
I have had them in front of my flower bed ever since and I love them. I actually sit in these chairs more often then the patio furniture. The little wire table/stand between the chairs was a curbside freebie a couple of years ago. I had spray painted it white and now the old rusty look is showing through which is fine by me.
I recently found these heavy twill like fabric pillow shams at a thrift store for $1.50 (for the pair) and thought they would look perfect on these chairs.
They have a nice touch of yellow in them to match the chairs.
They have a pretty flower garden feel and I like the way they look next to my flower bed.
