Funny story, though... they were for sale as a set, with a tile top table that I did not care for. So, I went to the cashier with my sticker and let him know that I just wanted the chairs, not the table.
His response: We can't break up the set.
Me: Oh, I understand. I'll pay the full price for the chairs, I just don't care for the table and I'd like to leave it here. So you can sell it to someone else?
Him: Let me call my manager
Manager: Sorry, we can't break up the set.
Me: I'd really only like the chairs, though. I'm happy to pay full price for the set, even without the table. Can't I just leave the table here?
Manager: Nope, sorry.
Me (after much pondering) : I have an idea! How about I'll buy the set, and then I'll donate the table back to you?!
Manager: Great idea! That will work!
So the chairs finally made it home with me :) I sanded/primed/painted them in a color matched to Heirloom White (trying to step away from the spray paint), and then stripped/sanded the seats. I stained those a dark walnut and put about 50 coats of poly on them. Or maybe only 7, but a lot of poly!
I love how they turned out!I know this isn't the best picture of them, but with the garage sale tomorrow, I've literally run out of places to take a good picture! We live in a ranch, and it is literally overflowing right now up here~ the basement is emptying out, but the pictures would be even worse down there!
thanks for stopping by!
