A Blast From The Past-  The first chair I ever gave an encore to!!

Thsese chairs came from a local thrift store.  They cost $20 each.  Highway robbery.  Jesse James used a gun I tell you.  Well, I was a babe at buying from thrift stores, I didn't know that was a little high.  (Like to see them try those prices on me now). Stripped and sanded to bare wood.Stained and reupholstered.  Deceided one should be a real lady and the other a gentleman.  These pictures show the work/story that led to this encore performance.

$20 each   I was robbed!!

 What a gentleman!
A lady from top to bottom!
From here there was no turning back. I seem to always be on the hunt for a great chair in need of an Encore.

  1. Hi Tina,
    These chairs look GREAT! Don't feel bad about the $20. I think for a solid chair that isn't bad at all. Especially if you had fun reviving them and either have a great use for them or can sell them. Both chairs...very handsome.
    Thanks for visiting my blog, too. Yours looks great.
