I have a minor obsession with thrift stores. I think it's a combination of the potential for really inexpensive stuff, the thrill of the hunt, and the fact that I believe it's just smarter to reuse old things (if possible and particularly when they are made well). That said, I try to keep myself in check because I live in a little studio apartment, and I, in no way, ever want to be one of those hoarders. I'm lucky because most of the stuff that I find that is reasonably priced and simply amazing is in Texas. A new sofa won't fit on a plane, so it makes for the perfect gut check.
A couple of weeks ago I found some chairs I couldn't walk away from. I scored three mid-century Danish modern chairs for a total of $4.69. I'm I pretty sure they are truly mid-century and not reproductions based on the way they are constructed. Couldn't tell you for sure and don't really care. Last week I reupholstered the seats of two of the chairs and couldn't be more pleased with the results. I wish I had taken a before picture, but the fruits of my labor are below.
