Today we picked up 4 chairs for our breakfast bar. A friend was selling them since she is moving house and they are not the right style for their new home.
The are perfect for ours and the fabric even matches with colours in the benchtop.
Our previous ones were black vinyl ones on a chrome base. They had an adjustable height but 2 of them have lost the gas in the adjuster. They will probably go on Freecycle. The other 2 have gone to Belle who has just moved and has a small breakfast bar so they will be perfect for her children.
We have spent the weekend helping her to move house and also sort out and declutter lots of ‘stuff’. Things are looking much clearer and more streamlined and I know she is happy with the result.
As well as giving our stools to Belle, we have brought some things home that are useful to us. One is the lawnmower, which originally belonged to my mother but was no longer required when she moved into a unit. Now Belle has moved into a townhouse and is no longer responsible for the garden maintenance so the mower can now replace ours which recently died.
With family at all different ages and stages of life we often find that furniture or other items that are no longer required can be passed on to another family member.
