Yes, at one time I passionately collected vintage metal chairs, and I was excited when I finally, achieved my goal of getting 8 vintage metal chairs! Our dinning room table holds 8 seats, and I envisioned drinks on the patio and then dinner in the house- a seat for all!
But time changes, and my vintage metal chairs no longer seemed at place in our more polished house. They seemed disorderly and junky. I couldn't make them work. I replaced all 8 chairs with new uniformed bouncy chairs. But I couldn't part with my vintage beauties. I hid them around the house in the bushes and in the attic.
As we prepare to move down the street to a larger home with a smaller yard (less attic space and bushes to hid things) I realized I had to re-home my 8 chairs. While my husband was away at Philly, I gathered up all chairs, loaded them in my husband's father's farm truck and drove them to my parent's house. This summer I plan to take them to the Reunion camp in an attempt to give them another life.
