Vintage Bamboo Table and Chairs



I found such a great table and chairs for my kitchen at an Estate sale...
I was so excited...
I've been looking for a set like this for a long time...


I don't know if any of you have ever been to an estate sale, but you have to be on your toes....
I got up at 5 in the morning to be at this sale that started at 8. 
I was the 4th person in line and when the door opened they let 10 of us in at at a time....

People ran into the house and started grabbing things they wanted...

There is no time to think about what you want or you lose...in other words....
if you snooze you loose!




 I'm having new chair pads made...out of this fabric below.





The fabric is from Kravet.





This is going to be a little pillow for the backs...





I was really happy to see this on One Kings Lane...I paid less for the whole set...






Talking about One Kings Lane...
I saw this settee and I thought it would look great with the pieces below...
It just needs some pink pillows and it would look so pretty! 
Check it out here...







love this..you can find it here






 



Go take a peek...they have some great things.. here.







My hubby and I went to the beach the other night to look at the waves...they were so big! 
I was actually surprised to see so many people there gawking at the waves......
See those little dots near the wave...those are surfers. The waves were 13 to 15 feet...
It was amazing!


What wasn't amazing was that I stepped in dog poop, and boy! did we have a long ride home! 

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for being so patient while I was going threw such a hard time....
We had my Dads memorial and were able to celebrate his life with family and friends...
Thanks 
Julie

  4. What a fantastic score. Chairs like that are hard to come by. I think your fabric selection is perfection! I saw the waves and they were really a sight for us in So Cal. Have a great Labor Day.

  8. Julie,
    What a beautiful set of chairs. They will really be show stoppers when you get your blue and white cushions made. Don't you love a "find"? That just makes the items even more special.
    I never managed to get down to the Wedge to watch the waves, but a co-worker said they were truly the biggest waves he had ever seen in Newport Beach.
    I'm glad you're back.
    xo,
    Karen
