You know us "Scrappers", we're willing to humiliate ourselves for a good deal!
Everything sounded good, they were old, rusty and metal!
But, I had to wait until after work to run by and check them out.
So after work I jumped in the car and headed out.
When I got there I was relieved that they were still there.
But, when I got out of the car there was an older man across the street, cleaning up his yard.
He looked at me pretty strangely but I gave him a smile and got out of my car to inspect the chairs.
I could feel my whole body turning red but these chairs were worth it so I ignored him and started loading the chairs.
Fortunately, they fit in the car and I could quickly get back in and hurry off before someone came running after me, yelling "Why are you taking my chairs!"
I mean, don't you think about things like that when you pick them up off the street!
Well, I got them home and cleaned them up, they're actually cast iron chairs, they're quite heavy.
They have great lines.
I needed to put some kind of cushion on them so I had a couple of feather pillows that worked perfectly.
I thought burlap would fit the bill, so I used that.
I was able to finish the project quickly and they're at the Garden Show awaiting a new home.
Just another day in the life of a "Junker".
