parsonage

friends, i need some help. i don't expect much since not many know i am blogging again but if you read this, please help. ok. so the other day on younghouselove they had some chairs-(click on the link)- and they are a steal of a deal and they are still available on craigslist. 2 hours away. here is what they look like if you are too lazy to click the link:

we can all agree now that that is the ugliest of ugly patterns but the shape of them is so nice. and so here is the question. would they be worth the 2 hour drive to procure them? these chairs are expensive in other places. like pottery barn-$250!!!! eek. do you think I could reupholster them? or have you heard of painting fabric? here is an example. so, dear readers, what would you do? please help. the end. and thanks.

Oh hello, see I do read your blog :) Get the chairs already! And paint them. And then show us your masterpieces. I am so curious about painting fabric...this could be genius!

(p.s. it was really, really fun to see you last night!)

Could make for a fun weekend drive! I think you could reupholster them. I am not the biggest fan of painting fabric.

get them.
but i can't believe you don't love that pattern. :)
and you can paint them and if you hate it you can do something different. you could even just make covers. that'd be fancy.

Go for it! They would be easy to recover. Glad you're blogging again!

Seriously what do you have to lose? you could get 2 and put them at the ends of your dining table one day.

There is this lovely little thing called a blog roll that let's me know you are blogging again.

Get them. Make them fabulous.

wow, painting fabric? who knew?
totally worth it, but that is my opinion. i think the marks would both snort and roll their eyes, but hey - if you ever need a partner in furniture crime, i'm your girl.

Totally get them! You could so recover them. For shizzle mcnizzle.
