Last weekend while looking at CraigsList for estate and garage sales I saw a listing for what seemed be a private estate sale.
This listing shared pictures of what was for sale....as I scrolled through the pictures I saw something that I had always wanted to add to my backyard paradise.......two vintage white rod iron chaise lounge chairs with side tables!
And they came with cutest yellow and white polka dot vinyl pads!!
Insert happy face here!!!
And it was one week away from pay day!
Insert sad face here!
No reason to even go look.....why torture myself.
Well, this Friday during my lunch break I was looking on CraigsList and the ad for the same estate sale was there.... again.....however, it had already ended. Apparently it was a Friday morning sale.
I sent an email asking if the chaise lounge chairs were still available. She replied she had one left. It included a side table as well. And she replied if I was interested be at her home Saturday morning by 10:00am!
"Don't be late, I have very little time before the moving truck shows up"
I called my daughter and told her I needed her muscle and her car....a stop at Starbucks was payment for her help!
This is what we brought home!!
It wasn't a steal, but it was reasonably priced....I was happy to spend $60.00 dollars for the lot. Compared to what a new chaise lounge, pad and a side table would cost at Home Depot or Lowe's, I guess maybe it was a steal!! I can never get over how much chair pads for outdoor furniture cost!!
I love patio furniture and of course the more vintage it is the better I like it!!! I have always wanted a white rod iron chaise lounge chair!!
Maybe because I have always loved this picture!

I came home from this estate sale with one more thing......offered to me for free!
A patio table! Mr. Math just looked at me! Another one???
But it was free! I couldn't say no!
The glass top needs to be cleaned up and then I need to search for chairs!
Has anyone ever spray painted the white plastic lawn chairs?
