When I started looking around for the other 3 chairs, I soon found that chairs are darn expensive! So, I started foraging in the local thrift stores. We have a few good ones in Richmond. So far, for furniture, my favorites are Diversity Thrift and DT2. I especially like DT2 because it is conveniently located on Main Street and I often pop in when I'm headed other places in the city.

After a few months of looking, I ended up with one $8 chair from DT2 and one free chair that my parents found on the side of the road with a "free" sign attached to it. Neither of them were much to look at, but they were built solidly, I couldn't beat the price, and I saw potential! I'm still patiently looking for another chair to complete the set.

To make it look somewhat intentional, I chose to recover all of my chairs in the same fabric (not the leather one). I loved this green and brown pattern that I found at JoAnn.

The reason I had the March-April issue of Richmond Magazine's R-Home is that they did a profile about me! Check it out here.
