As Promised (On The Twitter), I Got Some Good Pics Of The Chesterfield That I Picked Up During The Week. This One Is SOOOO Close! It's A Nicer Vinyl Than Usual...It Almost Passes For Leather, And It's So Comfy. But Alas, I Still Want Leather So This One Too Is Headed To The Booth. Status: Available.
Whowee! That's a good lookin' Chesty, right?! That Oxblood Red is just the right color for a vintage Chesterfield. Of course, it's vintage so it isn't perfect, but it's in pretty good shape none the less. It was missing a bun foot on the back but I've already got that covered.
The last time I picked up a Chesterfield I failed to give it a good once over and missed a one inch cut
in the seat and a missing button. Not this time. Even though I had to move quick (picked this up
before heading into work Thursday), I still made sure I knew what I was getting this time! This one
is gorgeous and in really great shape. Oh sure, it's got a scratch here and there but that's just par for
I had to run to the hardware store and pick up a pair of bun feet for the back of this before doing
anything with it. No way was I going to put this in a booth with just three feet! What, stick a bunch
of books under the back? Uh uh. I found the size feet I needed and went ahead and bought a pair so
they'd match. I'm staining them and drilling them for screws and as soon as I get that done this is
going back in the car and down to The Antique Mall of Creve Coeur.
The last two of these I've had I dropped into my booth at The Green Shag Market and they both
moved pretty quickly, but I wanna see how this one does at Creve Coeur. That and it's getting a little
late to make it to The Shag and I've only got so much space there. I've got tons of space in Creve
Coeur! This will hardly make a dent! I also picked up a Super Nice pair of sofa size painting today
and want to place one above this. It's just so much easier there at Creve Coeur.
