Rob spotted this great vintage chair under a huge pile of clothes and afghans at an estate sale. We moved all the stuff off the chair and saw that the price was $10. Of course I balked at the price and before we knew it, one of the workers at the sale ran up and said “How about $5 for the chair? You can’t beat that price.” And I said “For $5, you’re right, I can’t refuse.” Yay for the $5 chair. I’m probably going to recover the chair but haven’t decided if I’ll do it this year or wait until after we’ve bought a house.
Chair before cleaning:
Chair after cleaning. To clean the vinyl, I used a mixture of baking soda and vinegar, rinsed well with water and then dried with a soft cloth. It might be hard to tell the difference in the pictures, I’m not sure? It looks great in person though. 😀
We’re waiting until the nicer weather arrives to start exploring some of the wonderful homes/architecture in Chicagoland. However, there was one house I definitely wanted to see…..the house used in Home Alone and Home Alone 2. Home Alone 2 is one of my favorite movies!!! I was really excited to see the house and the area itself. Winnetka, IL is a gorgeous area filled with homes I cannot afford. 😀
Have a great day everyone! 🙂
