QUEST FOR CHAIRS-MY VINTAGE FIND!

I had searched for some dining chairs and a table for what seemed to be FOREVER...until I saw some vintage chrome chairs on ebay! The only problem was, they were being sold by someone in New York and the auction was for pick up only. Determined to have them, I emailed the seller and begged her to ship them to me. She finally said okay, but I would have to do all the research, and pay her to pack and take them to the nearest Greyhound station, etc. The final day of the auction came....and yep, I was indeed the only bidder....so, for $100, I won what I thought were six dining chairs....a call comes in from the seller as she discovered there were in fact EIGHT chairs...do I want them....yes please! Here's what they looked like when they arrived....


Ahhhh, yes....fake beige suede upholstery and rusting old chrome frame. But...I had a vision girls!


After spending a couple weekends restoring the old chrome, and having them reupholstered, here's what a good ebay buy gets you!

Have a custom table made to fit eight chairs....and call it a dining room! Now- I need some art, accessories and to remove the blue tape (which we all learn to live with, right?)!
