I was driving to class when I happened to glance over at the trash pad area of our apartment complex and saw these two gorgeous barstools just sitting there. I'm pretty sure they were crying out, "Saaaaaave meeeee!" I slammed on my brakes, threw my car in park and ran out to inspect them. I couldn't believe how nice they were, and even though I was completely embarassed to be taking things that were sitting next to the dumpster, I had to have them (hey, at least they weren't IN the dumpster!).
Once I got them inside I realized that they were missing three stretcher bars and were a bit wobbly, but a quick trip to the Home Depot for some dowel rods and paint and they should be good as new.
Now I have a question for all of you. I like the black that's on these chairs and they match our dining chairs pretty well (in color and style) but I'm wondering if I should branch out. What color would you paint them or would you just leave them as is?
