Dining Room Chairs

So you know that I've moved on to redoing the kitchen because I couldn't make up my mind about what I wanted in the dining room, right? Then I found these on Craig's List:

6 beautiful brass chairs with that Hollywood Regency / Palm Beach Chic look that I like. And the kicker - they are $100 for all 6! Actually 6 chairs and the table for $100. I don't want the table so I've offered $100 and will donate the table and have the Salvation Army pick up.

But the frustrating part is that the people haven't responded to my emails (yes I sent two). The ad is still up. Are they still for sale? Why won't you take my money?!! I want those chairs!

In other news progress is slowly being made in the kitchen. The light fixture I want is out of stock locally. I'm debating driving 25 miles to pick it up tomorrow instead of ordering it online and having it delivered. I had planned to install it this weekend.

I'm going to have to blow my budget. I broke the sprayer on my faucet. Do you know how expensive interesting looking faucets are? I'm looking at a $300 faucet which is what my budget for the entire kitchen update is. The search for a quality "statement" faucet continues.

The fabric I want to use on my kitchen white board and window treatment arrived today! They look so pretty with my paint color. I can't wait to use them.

I also got some fabric samples for other projects around the house in my package. I'm having fun playing with my fabric and paint swatches tonight dreaming and scheming. 

I hope you have a fun and productive weekend!


  1. Those chairs are perfection! I had a similar thing happen to me over the summer: found the perfect set of matching tufted blue velvet wing back chairs with nail head trim for the heads of my dining table, and also for crazy cheap. I wrote the seller one, two, three times and waited a week and got no response. So I finally ended up buying different chairs from IKEA - and then of course the day after got a response from the seller. SO frustrating. I hope this doesn't happen with this flake, too! Good luck!

  2. I agree! I found another set of chairs as a second choice option. I'm afraid to purchase them because I think the seller of the first set will contact me too late! I find it funny that I'm finding things to purchase when my focus isn't on the dining room any more.
