John and I have slowly been transforming our dining room into the science room. Bit by bit we’ve found pieces of furniture that are just our style. Our last hold out has been the table and chairs in the room. Our current table is very beaten as it was a garage sale find when my husband took his first apartment, oh, 25+ years ago. Living with us has done the table no favors. Still, I cover it with a cloth and it’s useful enough. For chairs, we were given some beautiful hand-me-down chairs from my sister-in-law. Eight of them. The problem is they are far too big and far too fancy for our taste. I cringe each time they are knocked around by my children. Truly, they deserve a much more precious home than ours. Still, we’ve been using them while patiently awaiting some chairs we like and can afford. John found them yesterday.
Original pricing from Target is $259 for a pair. Any guesses what he paid? $12.99 each. We are ecstatic!
