Craigslist, 4 Hour Drive, 2 Days Later

Remember my craigslist love at first site? If you don't just click that highlighted link :o) Well it was just that love at first site...and reality in the next blink. Can you see that these are definitely NOT the turquoise I thought they would be? Of course you can! Well hot dang it so can I!




Dang craigslist. On the upside I had planned on reupholstering these chairs anyways. I did have my fingers crossed that they would be that fabulous color, but they weren't. Hey regardless they are extremely sturdy (as well as dirty), and the cushion is firm as can be (prob. b/c the fabric is really made of plastic and is hard as heck). So eventually I will strip these bad boys and recover them. Want to know how much? $150...I know plz don't badger me to much, I already broke my no chair over $20 rule & have yet to come to terms w/ that. Now do you think it's really as bad as I do? OR are you as excited as me to see how fab they can truly be?! Hopefully the latter :o)

Morning! So sorry the chairs were not our fav color! I would of been so bummed. As a tip...any time anyone takes pictures with a flash it does change the color. I don't know why, just know it does.
I am positive you will make them fab!

Just found your blog through GET IT GIRL STYLE. I'm gonna follow so I can see how the chairs come out. I see the color that was in the picture...I would have wanted them too. Sorry that the color wasn't what it appeared to be.

Definitely the latter. In the pic on the previous post it looked like they were turquoise leather chairs. I almost didn't recognize these as the same ones. At least the nice shape is the same, and with some new fabric they will look great =) Looking forward to that one.. are you planning on reuph. by yourself? If you do, please document it, I would love some tips on how to do this!!

Since the quality of the fabric isn't so good, it doesn't really matter what color they are in reality. I can't wait to see what kind of fabric you choose. For $150 for 2 chairs, I think you got an amazing bargain.
