Doesn't the back look like a birds eyes & beak?
I know, fantastic huh??? Such lovely good bones!
I found six of these chairs last summer while out junking plus a table whose legs had been chewed beyond repair, $60.00 for all. So that comes out to about $10.00 per chair...not bad, I've paid more! These guys are rock solid and so comfortable. But that 1970"s stain, which has turned a greenish hue in places, has got to go!
All four legs are wonderfully ornate!
The front skirt below the seat.
Love those carved flowers!
Ornate top front and back! I bet that padded back was originally a cane back.
Here's a look at all the legs together. Even though I have six of the ornate chairs only four will sit comfortably around the table at one time. I think I'll paint the table base and legs also. I enjoyed working on projects for the shop, but somehow MY to-do list never really happened. Now I'm going to put all the time and effort into fluffing my own nest.!!!
The cabinet at back holds my linens, serving pieces, odds & ends table stuff.
So my solution for the two chairs that I'll need to re-upholster the back on is...they will sit on each side of this cabinet in the dining area and can easily be
squeezed pulled in when more are needed. And hopefully showcase their stylish new look.
So that is how I'm reducing the amount of chairs in my garage...by replacing six large with four smaller ones!!! Makes perfect sense to me;~)
