Hidden Treasures: Craigslist Kitchen Chairs

As my home projects continue for what will surely be the rest of my life, I decided a few weeks ago to {try to} focus on designing my eat-in kitchen area.  After seeing how versatile a farm table could be, I was completely sold.  I dreamed of chairs slip-covered in linen or grain sack… like these:

So, I began the hunt for the perfect parson chairs or frames that could be re-purposed or re-covered to achieve my vision without breaking the bank.  Where else would I turn: my man Craig, and House of Earnest* of course!  I almost pulled the trigger a couple of times with some chic, low-back frames from West Elm, but for some reason I just couldn’t do it.  And then I saw this, right here, from Erin!

I was immediately obsessed, swinging my plans in a completely different direction.  The magazine however, informed us that these chairs were vintage.  Huge bummer.  But the very same day, I came across these, and brought them right home:

One more time:

Are these seriously exactly the same?  A miracle.  I actually bought the table base that goes with it as well, scoring the set for $300.  They are the perfect size for my table and are just fantastic for what I am planning for the space!  Unbelievable, I know.  I told you, it’s magic.  My apologies for the Iphone pics, my camera was giving me trouble this morning!

Does anyone else have a great project or hidden treasure that House of Earnest* inspired?  Share it with us!

Have a fantastic Wednesday!
