Mid Century Mania





My growing passion for Mid Century design has only increased over time. And sadly, my Duncan Fife-style chairs and table were becoming too delicate for daily use. Enter Craigslist. After looking through a handful of Salvation Army and Goodwills, I began the search for earnest on ol' reliable Craigslist. I found this set of six chairs and table with leaf for ... $95. No joke. We wasted no time getting over to the woman, who was given the set to sell as a donation for animal rescue. Fate? Indeed. Handing the woman an even $100 for good karma, we took the set home and began to refurbish the seats and stain the wood. Now all of my linens seem incredibly old-fashioned, so I bought these recycled placemats from CB2. Perfection!
