What A Great Bargain !


        Before the weekend Papa was looking through Kijiji  to see what was for sale and what was free  as we have been looking for a few pieces of furniture , me mostly wingback chairs or one wingback chair  .

            He stumbled across these two  original wingback chairs and ottoman for $150 ,he showed  me the pic  of them and I fell in love  they looked  to be in great condition so  Papa  proceeded to get in contact with the seller and picked them up yesterday, wingback chairs were hard to come by then and are even harder now especially in this style with the  English Victorian country cottage rose print and  in this type of fabric to and now a days because there  are so many vintage collector's out there  they are harder to come by !

JULY 2014 (2 of 7)

The only thing that was wrong with them was the front leg of one of the chairs was a bit wonky and had a crack but Papa and his wood working know how has that chair leg in his wood shop curing with special wood glue in a vice so by tonight all will be perfect  ! But heck all three pieces for $150  what a steel , as one chair like this at an auction  would get bided  at  least $ 500 or more  and the ottoman at least  $200 to $300   .

                  Finally after many years close to 20 or more looking for  this style of wingback chair and ottoman all in my colours  of rose wood , rose pink , Chambery blue , sand beige , blue silver  , hunter and Victorian green  and  able to afford them  I now have them and I am soo happy , the fabric is in mint condition very clean and no wear marks at all .

  Harley kitty has taken her spot under the ottoman lol  I love the original claw feet on them and they have just the right wear and tear  on them for me to !

The tables there will be replaced with vintage ones that Papa has been slowly working on in his shop ! But for now these tables will do !

                                                          Don't you just love a good bargain . I do !

                                                                 Until next time my friends !

Clever Papa, how wonderful to have such an artist in the family :) Your chairs and ottoman are very pretty. I would love to have them.

I haven't seen Mrs. Brown's move but have been sent her shows on YouTube and they make me howl.

I'm so glad that you had such a great find! It is lovely when you are looking for something and find just the right thing at just the right price isn't it, and especially when you have someone as handy as Papa to do any repairs! I hope that you enjoy curling up in them, Miggs will probably think that the ottoman is for her! xx

Oh, wow!!!

Patience does pay off. Even handier to have a handy man.

I love your new chairs.

That is a great bargain! It pays to be handy; you can pick up fantastic items and very low prices, and fix whatever ails them.

Nice chairs! I love the wing chairs, so much so that when I bought my lazy boy I found one that is a wing chair. Its just burgundy but I love it, hope I never have to get rid of it
