I can’t forget about the dining room chairs I bought 20 years ago! All are miss-matched – except they do have a sorta kinda shell motif carved into their backrests (and they were all the same colour wood). I hunted them down over a span of a few months and got them all at about 75% off the original price of $400-$450 each. Good quality is always worth the trouble when it comes to refinishing, and for these 4 babies I plan on doing a white paint job. That’s the plan anyway. For now.
