Just What I Was Looking For!!!

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!


My Mom and Dad poolside at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, 1959!

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?

  1. I consider this a great find and a good deal. I have a photo of me, with my husband Gary at the Flamingo, probably around 1962-63 . . . I will have to look for it! Thank you for visiting me at Irish Garden House.

  2. I love the polka dots! Great find! Sometimes you have to pay a little more for something you really want... and about painting... I tried painting plastic chairs with the plastic paint that is available...later I was told I should have primed them first. I didn't prime mine and the paint did chip off.

  3. Love that picture of your parents. That chaise lounge is absolutely fabulous. Love the polka dots against the yellow print. I just love happy endings.

  4. Two chairs and a table plus the cushions for $60 is a good deal! I can't believe they were still waiting around for you..meant to be. Love the polka dot yellow too.

  7. So exciting - you got a lot! Cute polka dot cushion! Love the photo of your mom & dad.
    Looked up "painting plastic lawn chairs" on Pinterest & saw quite a few pins - thought I'd seen something about that earlier. Check them out.
    Happy Labor Day!

  9. Great fabric on the chaise! How lucky you were to be able to get the chair and table in the end. Come on, you'd be crazy to walk away from that free table!

  13. Chris I am actually working on a set of tables very similar to what you got with your lounge chair!! Now I feel like my set is missing the Chair!! LOL ~ Great finds and who doesn't like free right!!

  14. I am not sure what I adore more...the new vintage chaise or that adorable photo of your folks. Both are simply charming!

  15. Oooh, I LOVE your new chaise lounge with the yellow polkadot cushion! For some reason Doris Day keeps popping into my head. Did she wear a yellow polkadot dress in one of her movies or something? :-)

  16. I can't seem to find a spot on your page to contact you about the spoolie swap and you may not have seen my comment on your other post with my email, so I'll try again :) judisjunque@gmail.com ~ Thanks much ~ Judi

  17. Your folks are adorable in that pic! What a steal with the patio furniture... the polka dots are fantastic.

  18. Chris, I love that, and you're right, the cushion alone would have cost more than that (and it wouldn't have been nearly as cute as this cushion). Sometimes, it's cheaper to buy new outdoor furniture with cushions than to buy replacement cushions. Craaazy! Love that photo of your mom and dad, and I agree, you can't pass up something that's free. You had a good day. laurie
