    Post-Purchase High

    Nothing says "I love you" like mustard-coloured vinyl.
    Oh yeah.

    I used to love our vinyl armchairs when I was little.
    When I saw these, I couldn't resist.
    Remember when I bought a whole dining setting for $50.00?

    Yeah, well these weren't much more. As a set.
    I kid you not.


    They'll look fab in our 1950's front sitting room.

    Lurve.

    Please dont tell me they were hard rubbish. Or they just happened to be sitting in the op shop.

    I may turn nasty.

    I am mustard with envy!

    Love 'em.

    They are in such great condition too.

    My parents have the matching swivel dining chairs to match. In plastic, not vinyl, much easier to clean.

    Sorry, not my thing. I felt the backs of my legs sweating just looking at them!

    But Aunty Evil! - look at the *shape* - can't you imagine these with a non-vinyl reupholster ? :)

    I pick them up Saturday ....

    Very nice indeed.In such good nick too. I quite like vinyl myself, very kid friendly - although recovered would be cool too. Th couch also looks like it would fold out into a double bed - perfect for those short stay guests!

    Mmmm....nice one. Whatchya gone recover them in?

    h&b said...

    I won't recover - well, not yet, maybe in a few yrs??

    I quite like the mustard, and it goes with stuff/colours I already own - although AB was hoping to move into a more modern arena if/when we renovate properly .. so we'll see what happens..

    At last a home for my AuntieCookie cushions too - hoorah!

    Louise said...

    They are lovely! Bet they look beautiful in your house.

    No vinyl in NQ homes though - heat, humidity, plastic and workplace health and safety will be investigated nasty slipping and spilling to the floor accidents.

    Such a great shape.
