Then there were three

I'm about to run out with Doc to finish ripping out the grass from our vegetable bed so that we can begin planting tomorrow, but before I go, I wanted to post this update.

Remember this chair? I found it on the Philly streets, sad and broken. I breathed new life into it and I love it! Now it has company. I found two chairs in Portland as a neighbor was cleaning out his grandmother's house. One was missing an arm and both were in terrible need of reupholstering, but they had nice structure and were in decent shape (much better than their older sibling.)

My plan is to collect five "street chairs" total, fix them up, paint them the same color, and cover the seats in the same fabric. They will sit around our lovely farm table, coordinated, but not too matchy. Two more free chairs to go!
