I have two other posts that are half complete but I just can't not share this with you now!
I have had to stop the press to show you this instead!
I got this gorgeous lounge the other day.
A girlfriend and I went to an op shop after an SRE course on Friday,
I was looking at some chairs that another friend had alerted me to that I had been looking for.
We looked at them, but there were six and I really only wanted two - they didn't want to split the set, and because I am overflowing with furniture until VCH builds my shed I was reluctant to buy the six even though they were a decent price, I said I would think about it.
But while we were there we also saw an absolutely gorgeous old lounge with rattan sides and lovely curved legs,
it was beautiful and I loved it,
but I am no upholsterer and not much of a sewer either,
so after a bit of deliberation I also left it there.
Monday I was going about my business when I got a phone call from a potential client,
who would be wanting quite a few things and possibly a lot of chairs.
This led me to start to rethink whether or not I needed those chairs.
Bright and early Tuesday morning I hotfooted it into the op shop knowing that there was a good chance they were still there as they are shut on Monday's.
Yes they were!
I bought the six and then had coffee with my friend at the coffee shop attached and we debated about the lounge and debated and went and had another look,
I rang VCH and asked if he would pick it up for me and after he said yes I paid for it.
How much you ask?
Yes you heard me right for the whole set, a three seater lounge and the two chairs.
VCH couldn't bring them home on Tuesday because he had a delivery to do,
but they came home on Wednesday night and I took some photos yesterday.
So after my ramble I suppose you want to see the photos...
The fabric is quite worn,
but the rattan is in perfect condition.
Now I just have to take for heart in my hands and actually sew some new slip covers, I am just waiting to see if my new clients want it and if so I will paint it up how they want, if not I am thinking soft grey paint and white slip covers.
