Dang! I've Been So Busy Lately That I Nearly Forgot That I Picked Up This Set Of Four Broyhill Brasilia Dining Chairs A Couple Weekends Back! These Seem To Be Becoming Harder To Come By, Even Around Here In The Mid-West. Status: Soon To Be Paired.
OK, so that's not a set of four Broyhill Brasilia chairs is it? Nope. That's last evening's dinner! Ah...finally, Bar-B-Que season. Just had to share that. 'Twas my first time with real lump charcoal too. It's a learning curve, but I'm getting there. Just gotta get out there more often to hone those skills. Anyway, click through to check out the chairs!
Seems like not to long ago there wasBroyhill Brasilia just about everywhere. Estate sales,
thrift stores, criagslist. I've still got two dining tables in the garage and a coffee table and
buffet / server waiting to go over to Dan's for some attention, but it doesn't seem to be
falling into my lap like it used to. But then, every time I mention this a couple more pieces
seem to show up...you just never know. I know I'm less likely to look a gift horse in the
mouth these days when the Brasilia does make itself available. When the iron is hot, this
guy is gonna strike. Of course, this doesn't mean that I've abandoned my standards.
I passed on a large china cabinet, four chairs and a dining table at the same auction where I
picked up the coffee table and buffet / server a while ago. I'm not gonna try to find a new
home for everything! Those particular pieces where a little more rough than I like to handle.
These chairs aren't perfect but they've got plenty of life left in 'em. They could use a little
love in the finish department, one is a little wobbly where the back connects to the seat and
all want for some better looking upholstery. But these are all much more easily solved than
finding chairs in the first place. Like I said, I'm not looking any gift ponies in the maw these
::Sigh:: I couldn't let this go without show ya. How cute is little kitters?! So tuckered out
after a long day of "lap cat".
