Weekend Find

I was furniture hunting again over the weekend, trying to knock some items off my "to find" list, when I happened upon these...

Drexel dining chairs in a beautiful cerused oak finish...6 sides and 2 arms. Success! I opted out of the seat cushions that came with the chairs and will have new ones made with fresh upholstery; fabric TBD. (Interesting piece on cerused oak finish here, from the LA Times...)

I love that these chairs are different. I've bought a vintage faux-bamboo dining table that I've had lacquered creamy white, and I think that the modern look of these chairs will be a nice balance to the traditional bamboo detailing of the table. I'm a big fan of mixing furniture styles and periods and so I think I will love this combination in my dining room.

In other news, the metal bamboo chairs have sold; thanks to all of you who had interest in them. This one's a little random, but I also have a brand-new Serena & Lily Sprout Crib Skirt that I'm looking to sell. It's never been used (the green didn't work with the other fabrics in the room). $50 (plus shipping, if you're not local.) Email me if you're interested.
