Metal Lawn Chairs

Oh, I love these chairs! They take me back to the rolling hills and dairy farms I was surrounded by as a child growing up in Minnesota.

In fact, several of these have even made the trip across the country from MN to WA. My father-in-law picked up the white glider chairs from someones garbage pile in MN. He replaced the bolts and nuts and cleaned it up and they have such a lovely glide, they really are a hot seat around the bonfire!

 
I found this one at an junk store in The Dalles on my 30th birthday, it came home with a shiny silver paint, but I think red suits it much better. Oh, and I love the dimple that's left from someone's target practice.

I always have my eye out for these and I have a bit of a game that I play, I try not to pay over $15.00 per chair. So far, that is the most I've spent on one chair, $15.00! They typically run about $50.00 at antique stores, but since I've found them so cheap, I refuse to pay that exhorbitant amount!

 
Since I took this photo, one more chair has traveled across the country from Minnesota, it's another white one, similar to the red and aqua ones, but it's a rocker and it's just lovely!

Oh, I love these chairs and I'm always keeping my eye out for more to add to my collection, the more chairs I have, the more neighbors I can fit around the bonfire!
