...So, my lovely toaster wasn't the only thing I picked up last week. I finally got my dining chairs too...I was on my way home from the thrift store...when I decided, reluctantly, to stop by another thrift store. I didn't want too...I really didn't want to spend anymore money...for some reason there I was pulling into the parking lot, just for a peek. When what did I see? A man taking these chairs out of his car to donate. What? Those look like the chairs I've been looking for for months. I had to have them.
This is how it all went down:
ME: Hey, how you doing? Are you donating those?
ME: Can I have them?
HIM: I don't care...take em...I'm just trying to get them out of my house.
ME: Doing the happy dance as I put 4 FREE chairs into my car.
Now if that's not a manifest wednesday story for ya, I don't know what is...I went out looking for chairs, found a toaster instead...was heading home not wanting to spend more money...something told me to check out one more spot...and waiting right there for me...free chairs. The chairs I wanted.
I don't know about you but, I'm about to dream bigger. Smile.
Okay, the seat covers are funky...eeww. But the bones are great...It's gonna take a lot of elbow grease to get these puppies ready for prime time...But you guys know I'm up for the challenge. Stay tuned.
