Fabulous & Free Friday!!!!!

These are two of my favorite words.... Fabulous & Free!!!!!
I regularly stalk the thrift/ Antique/ Salvation Army/ Goodwill stores. Sometimes dragging along Hubs, his eyes glazed over and he entered a near comatose state after about hour 4 of our last excursion. Bless his heart, he's a pretty good sport.

Sometimes the bestest of the best finds are those that are free. I suggest always letting your friends know what your looking for, you never know what might come up.

My wonderfully amazing friend, Kylie, knew I was looking for chairs for my dining room. Looking was going very slowly because I had an almost non-existent budget......
{{{{{{{{SIGH}}}}}}}}
I hate to wait. When I make a decision I want it done. Now.Now.Now!

Now I'm the proud owner of some new (to me) dining room chairs for FREE! They needed some TCL, of which I have plenty to give. TLC being free and all. :-)

A little cleaning, touch up paint and new fabric for the seats and I am in love!!!
Ignore all the distracting stuff in the background...... I need to improve my picture taking, I'll be working on that. In the meantime, I already had this picture handy.
Happy Friday!!!!

COOL CHAIRS!! I am a member of FREECYCLE, it is usually broken down my counties and we have found quite a few treasures for free. If you are not already a member type it in to your search engine to see if there is a group in your area.
