My MIL veto-ed the vintage style chairs I found at an antique store. They were kinda like the ones below, except brass with cream leather. She said that she already HAD chairs like that and gave them away a few years ago… It kinda made me realize something: trying to sell someone on “antiques” that they have already owned and tossed is NOT going to be easy. Cant say I blame her!
I came up with a new idea that I love. We have a set of 4 upholstered parsons chairs in her basement. They were originally in my husband’s first apartment. LEATHER SLIPCOVERS. Sexy, sexy, sexy….

These are going around a round glass table. Oh, and even though we already own the chairs, I think that the leather slipcovers are going to cost way more than the antiques would have… They were only $100 each.
Wait, I just found an iphone picture of the vintage chairs I liked:

Just want to say that a reader went and bought the vintage barcart I posted last week. That makes me so happy!
