Vintage Chairs

So I have been in this crazy nesting mode lately, which is weird because I am not pregnant nor do I really have the funds to be doing this, but it's happening!
I have been in this struggle to replace our dining room chairs for months now. I got my table and chairs from my parents when I moved out after college and I loved them, but I had to say a prayer anytime I scooted.
I ordered some chairs, didn't like them. I ordered some other chairs, didn't like them. After returning two sets of chairs (WARNING: Never order chairs from the Internet especially if you are an indecisive individual), I decided to purchase chairs that I could actually see and sit on in real life, imagine that!
Enter The Brass Armadillo
I love antique stores. Living in Phoenix, we don't have a plethora of antique stores so this one is a gem!

You could get flowers made from plates and glasses...

Or even a throne...

Hidden among the maze of merchandise were these potential treasures.
Please ignore how messy my house is in the background... I was in the middle of chaotic impromptu reorganizing.
OK, look past the ugly blue fabric and try to see the hidden beauty that I see. Once these bad boys are reupholstered, they are going to go-or-geous! Not to mention I got a screaming deal, these are worth about $200 each and I can tell you right now that I paid nowhere near that amount. Boom.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
