Yet Another Salvation Army Find

During my usual Friday-after-work trip to my favorite thrift store, I was able to spot and score 6 fabulous bamboo chairs!

I saw another lady giving them the side eye so I scooped up the price tag and practically ran to the checkout. I'm sure that was quite the scene, considering I'm not much of a runner. ; ) I made it there before her and all 6 chairs came home to be with me.

I have no idea where they are going to go or if I am even going to keep them all. But, I can tell you that a reupholster job is in their near future as is a definite paint job!

I'm on a real bamboo kick here lately and I just could not pass them up. I am super excited for yet another makeover.

These chairs are fantastic and well worth the sprint to make sure nobody else went home with them, that's very funny.
Be sure and let us know what you do with them:o)

Seriously, those are going to be stunning! I bet you could sell those for a killing once you do your magic on them.

I once SAT on a sofa at Salvation Army while my husband secured it at the register for me. I'm dying to know what you paid for all of those.

Oh I am TOTALLY jealous! I love bamboo chippendale chairs, mainly because they used them on the Golden Girls. :) Those are going to be absolutely gorgeous and for that price, you can't beat it!
