I have been looking for some chairs for a little while. We have a 'breakfast bar' in front of the kitchen, and when I am in the kitchen cooking that is where the children sit to chat or eat (if they aren't in the kitchen helping!). They use the dining table chairs, so I have wanted to put some chairs at the breakfast bar so that they don't have to move the others. Trouble is that I haven't found ones I like that were cheap, until today...
I found three of these at a garage sale up the road. I'm not sure what type of wood they are (mum? help?) but they are sturdy, and I haven't seen something exactly like them before.
Apparently they are Theatre Chairs, and were bought in the 1950s from the Regent Theatre in Melbourne. I love things that have a history.
What about you? Where are your favourite places for a bargain?
