Boomerang Chairs and More Cool Stuff

Standard

Remember this pair of chairs that we picked up last spring for $10 each? Yes, $10.

Well here they are sporting their new looks just in time for the Holidays. One for the living room and one for the basement. I picked up the upholstery fabric on Ebay for a song, had them rebuilt and recovered and repainted the iron legs. We spent less than $280 total for both chairs. Hows that for a bargain?

I was recently at a sale in a 1967 home. This was the basement kitchen floor. What I would not give for them to reintroduce that pattern now!

This pair of Oriental chalkware plaques were an antique mall find at 75% off: $5 for both!

This coffee table in the basement may get me into trouble with other mid mod enthusiasts; It is a newer table in a retro style.

This atomic Fire King casserole with stand was just too cool to pass up for $17. I have never seen this pattern and it is in great condition.

These cute brown poodles were a gift from my youngest son and his girl. They are in the main bath.

This huge lamp weighs a ton and has ended up in the living room on the corner table. I want to paint the base but am not sure which direction to go. Ideas? We are leaning towards charcoal gray.

After a date with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser she cleaned up pretty good!
