I found two wonderful bamboo chairs at a shop right down the street from our house.
So close, in fact, I carried them home one by one.
Two for twenty-five dollars, you can't beat that.
I painted one by hand with high gloss white paint.
And sprayed the other with a white lacquer.
To tell you the truth, they look about the same.
Spray painting is sure easier though.
Then I came across this China Seas Aga in a turquoise
for a fraction of its original price (thank heavens).
I once again carried the chairs one at a time back downtown.
We are so lucky to have a very talented and very, very
reasonable seamstress in town.
I adore these chairs.
Don't you think they came out great?
Nothing more fun than a bargain that
that ends up
looking like a million bucks.
