This is what $2.50 looks like:
At least, that's all I spent on these three rummage sale finds this weekend.
This ottoman--comprised of six cane circles and a wooden top--was fifty cents.
The same seller didn't have a price sticker on the little tapered-legs table. I asked the price and he said free. Yes, please!
The retro upholstered chair was the big purchase of the day--$2.00.
The metal legs and arms were a bit rusty and worn, and the tweed upholstery has a slight tear, but otherwise it's in great shape.
Mike and I disassembled all three pieces,
...where necessary. (We decided to leave the chairs upholstery for another time--it'll make a good winter project.)
Twenty-four hours later and things were looking a little cleaner, a little fresher:
We painted the formerly brass pieces of the chair's arms white for greater contrast.
The ottoman went white--though I'm not sure it'll stay this way. I'm thinking it could be really fun in some other colors. We'll see.
And the table, which will go to my brother's new apartment, also got a two toned makeover. I decided to simply paint the metal caps on the feet because I couldn't get the old paint and gunk off very well. I may hand paint them for a contrasting look.
Money well spent.
