First, a set of four klismos-style chairs I spotted at the Habitat for Humanity store today for $50 each . . .
I loved the shape and thought they would be great around a round table. The problem? Three were side chairs and one had arms. Very strange. Anyway, while perusing blogs today, I ran across this photo from the Elle Decor Showhouse in San Francisco on Katiedid. Check out the dining room by Palmer Weiss (a designer I love):
Don't these chairs look similar? You could lime the wood and possibly even add fabric to the wood backs for a similar effect. What do you think?
My big find at the Habitat store was a $3 black cylinder shade for my $4.99 lamp. That's right, my entire lamp came in for a grand total of $8 and some change. Woo hoo!
|I'm kind of digging the retro vibe of the lamp. Sorry, I took this at night, so the lighting is not good.|
Earlier in the week, I spotted a pair of ceramic foo dogs at an antique mall for $30 for the pair. Thought that was a great deal. Some people don't like the foo, but I still do.
And this French mirror looked extremely familiar, and while I don't remember the exact price, I think it was pretty reasonable. These last two items were at the Winchester Antique Mall in Franklin.
And although this version is much smaller, I knew I had spotted this look recently both here and here.
Wishing you all a Happy Weekend. I'll be hosting our supper club tomorrow night and I'll try and remember to snap some pics of the finished table before dinner.
