It's actually not a store, it's more like an old garage with really nice scratch and dent furniture jammed in it.
Anyway, I was shopping around and noticed two identical, really great rocking chairs. I've looked at the prices of rockers and they aren't cheap. They want at least $100 at Lowe's and Home Depot and then of course I need 2, so yeahhh, too expensive.
These particular rockers were listed for $39 each. I knew in this type of setting it was acceptable to bust out my negotiating skills. I asked if they were willing to go lower and the gal working there had to call her boss to find out. He told her to ask me what I was willing to spend and I went for it! I was like a pro, I said, even without thinking they'd ever take the deal..."$50 for the pair." He said YES!
I brought them home and knew I was going to sass these babies up. I sanded them, wiped them down, and painted them plum. Ahhhh so gorgeous. I painted them plum because that is the same lovely color my shutters will be! I actually had the paint lady at Home Deep do an exact match of the shutters.
Keep in mind they are still a work in progress because the seat to the chair needs a second and third coat of white exterior spray paint. I am thinking I might monogram the top panel of the chair too. Ya dig?
