A local hotel had these chairs for sale on their lawn for five bucks a piece. I pulled over and bought as many as I could squeeze inside my minivan amongst four children. I fit four and continued on my way to the grocery store. Don’t even ask where we fit the groceries!Here’s the first reveal, with three more to come. I have two done thus far and am as still deciding on the second pair, so expect another reveal this week, and two more in the weeks to come.Here’s the first chair…Before:
