old turquoise garden chairs


Two vintage garden chairs in the perfect color.
I found them on Craigslist last night in the town next door.
Mr. Maison Decor agreed to go get them with me, 
even after declaring them to be just "old metal chairs"....
Yah??? That is what makes them great!
They don't even match, he said.
Thats what makes them even cooler, I said.
His and Hers, obviously!
 They are going to look great with my turquoise umbrella. 
Goodbye plastic adirondacks....
Getting excited for spring and summer just 
by looking at my old garden pictures. 
Can't wait to put these cool old chairs in the yard.

  13. Love em! They are a great color, too. I found two a few years ago for $5 each but they were bright blue. We painted them green, but now I thinking they need a new color again.

  14. Hi again. I just found my paperwork that was on the roll of wall paper and it says VG60707 RUN #7. If you google that it should come up. It actually has a brown background. Looks a little different that my blog shows. It comes with different colored backgrounds too. I bought it from Stevens blinds and papers on line.

  19. Those are a great find! The most perfect color. I had a whole set of these that my Grandmother left me but when I moved to this house I left them for my sister to use since they didn't really go with this home. But I love those kind of chairs. My Grandmother's were painted cream....so I would have had to paint. That was really a lucky Craig's List find. I can't wait to see them in your garden. Yes, with your umbrella.

  21. Oh Amy I am loving your chairs!! LOVE the color- how absolutely perfect!! Two different chairs paired together is fantastic~ I love that they don't match perfectly! They will looks great in your amazing yard!! I am thinking I need some turquoise in my yard this year- such a great color!

    I read your comment about my cupboards too. Yes, knotty pine walls are the backs- they are the kitchen walls. As for your newer ones~ of course...caulk is your friend lol! you could fill the holes if you wanted to to create a smooth interior- but what about just papering or lining with beadboard inside if you wanted one to be open?

  22. Amy, I love your chairs! I bought one at an auction last year and I love mine. I've been on the look-out for another but I haven't been so lucky so far.

    Have a wonderful day,

  29. My grandmother had these types of chairs so when I found two (on seperate excusions) in people's TRASH I went and asked if I could take them. One is turquoise, the other I am stripping to repaint as it had rust spots. I love them! No plastic chairs here! I'd rather sit on the ground!
