for my living room*

i saw these chairs on kijiji and HAD to squeeze some money out of the budget...
i LOVE the style of them, the wood trim, the tufted back... even the fabric.
and it's not everyday you find an antique chair that doesn't need to be recovered.
i think the only thing i'll do is give them a good clean'n and replace the foam in the cushions.

they look FABULOUS with the curtains i just made!
** don't look to close... the bottom isn't hemmed ; ) it's on the list**

UPDATE* just turned the chairs over to put some pads on the bottom of each leg and you wouldn't believe what i found...

quite an extensive collection of
BOOGERS : P !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
i guess you never know what surprises your going to get when you buy an antique ; )

I have to agree with Jess. Dave and I had "the nest" couch when we were first married and did find one of Chuck's "collections". I love the chair. I and LOVE the curtains!

Good budget squeeze! And you were right, they match perfectly! Now let's get your curtains hemmed. :) Then your living room will be complete.
