thrifty thursday

Last weekend I went to one of my favorite
antique malls and I spied this cute chair.
It definitely needs a make-over......

.....but I think she has pretty legs.

....... and it was only $5.00!!!!
I couldn't believe it.
I thought the chair must be falling apart, but it's very sturdy.
I must of checked the tag ten times before taking it up to the register.

These napkin rings are at Walgreen's, 2/$1.

They match my chargers perfectly.

Thanks to Leigh for hosting Thrifty Thursday.

  1. Wow! Girl! You got some great finds! That chair is pretty, great lines. I can just imagine it recovered. Or even with a coat of fresh paint. Or even "antiqued" a bit more. And those napkins rings...they remind me of my favorite place to the sea!

  3. I once bought a set of 6 chairs at auction for $10. It is truly amazing the deals you can get on really nice chairs -- If you do a makeover on it, be sure to do a full before and after shoot :)

  4. Hi Lisa, You're right, that chair does have great legs! That's what attracts me to an old piece - the details. It could be completely falling apart, but if it has nice detail work - I'll snatch it up. Great find!
