So, what do you think? I got both for $125. I think that was a good deal?! As you can tell, one is a rocker. It actually is pretty comfortable. Anyways, the poor lady who was selling them must have thought I was nuts. When I called about the chairs, I had to ask her if they had any odor. Of course, she said no. You see, I have had a bad experience with a chair I bought from the auction. It started out okay, then I noticed the musky, old smell. I cleaned and cleaned it and made a slipcover for it. Four months later, I had to strip it down to the frame and reupholster it. That is a road I don't want to go down again for a while.
When I showed up to look at them, I apologized and explained then proceeded to stick my nose all over the chair and give big sniffs. Thumbs up! It was a go ahead. As I loaded the chairs up, I think it was safe to say that the only thing to sit in the chairs was her cat. A very long haired gray cat!
I have decided to take you on my journey of recovering them. I think this will help me make a daily bit of progress. Before we embark on this journey together, you have got to help me. I usually like the monochromatic look. But for some reason, I have purchased this fabric for the chairs:
It is cream and brown zebra print. Be brutally honest! Is this too much of a jump for the chairs? I am uncertain about my choice now that I have bought it. As long as I don't cut it, I am still able to return it. Please, please, let me know what you think.
