But then I fell in love with these chairs.
Gorgeous, aren't they? Made in America and I'm all about keeping my countrymen employed these days. Offered by a company that promotes sustainability. And $300 a piece, plus tax and delivery. Doh!
Every dollar our family spends is spent with purpose. Toward local and green. But I just couldn't spend that many dollars.
Instead, I hooked up with this little duo at a garage sale for $25.
After hitting them with a couple cans of (non-eco) black spray paint that we had lying around,
I ended up with this. A second hand work station that has first class style.
