Got The Big Shoe Horn Out And Pried The Brasilia Score Out Of The Back (And Front Seat!) Of Frank Jr. Status: Stashed In The Garage.
That's a lotta table and chairs! I already had three and added 6 more. Can you believe I got all this (well, less the three extra chairs) and the giant buffet in one trip? Frank Jr. the Focus wagon is AWESOME!!!
Here's the big ass buffet. Kinda bumped and bruised. Illuminate (my estate sale cohort) has the
same buffet with an unidentified china top on it. When she got her set and was bringing it into her
home one of the drawers got chipped on the lower right corner. I stopped by on my way home from
this buy and we traded out my unchipped drawer for her chipped one to make her set nicer. It was
the least I could do after she helped me score that Brasilia bedroom set.
So now I have 9 chairs, 3 of which are captains / armchairs! Crazy right? And have you ever seen
a Brasilia table with all three leaves installed? It's HUGE, like a conference table. I didn't have time
to go over each of the chairs but I know one has a good chip taken off of a back leg. The
upholstery looked rough on all of them. The table top has some water rings and one corner has
some more serious issues. I think all of the legs are split were the pieces of wood are glued
together an one has been really poorly glued back together. I know...rough rough rough. But still
serviceable! Worst case scenario, the whole set can be repaired and painted! And it may come to
that. Stay tuned.
