Faith in Craigslist has been Restored

Today while reading one of my favorite blogs My Cup of Te I fell in love. This is not unusual because everything Roxy posts I usually fall in love with.



When I saw this chair I knew it reminded me so much of some a dining room I had seen...




There was one HUGE problem. I am not in the market for $1400 dining room chairs. I am not in the market for anything that is $1400. 

      design darling

I went to my Craigslist and found these. Just add some hot pink wool fabric and wah lah.


I begged Doug to take off work and get the chairs. He refused and said that they "looked like 1980".
What do you think yay or nay?

  2. YAY! But only if he lets you put pink fabric on them. Or some other fun not-so-gender-neutral color on them. ; )

  8. they're totally retro and fun--I'd say a fun color would make them even better! if you're in for a fun Friday link-up, you should do a Friday's Fancies one week...I'm certain you'd do a great one! happy to have found your blog :) xoxo {av}
