so here they are, my favourite thrifty finds for the new flat.
the table is from a buried away charity shop in cirencester, it was amazing and i could have easily spent hours in there. i had to convince j that mismatched furniture was definitely not an issue, and once he came round, we nabbed it for £15 and began the hunt for some chairs.
ebay has an awesome selection of chairs- i'm not sure if it was easier because we wanted two instead of four, but there were tons to choose from.
we were really lucky and found these pretty quickly- they had about 20 minutes to go, were close enough for us to pick up, and were only on 99p, so we went for it. with about 1 minute left, i was sure we'd be thrown into a bidding war, but luck was definitely on our side- we won them with only one other bid, for the grand sum of £2.20!! easily my best bargain ever!
i was slightly worried about picking them up- i panicked that we must've read wrong and were going to come away with dolls house furniture, but here they are, and i absolutely love them :) they are in amaze condition, and for mismatched furniture, i think they fit pretty perfectly with the table.
the chairs have started a bit of a joke with everything else that we buy now- it's slightly bizarre knowing that things like our lunch will cost more than them! what do you think?
