Set of 4 Chippendale style chairs

This item has been sold IMG_7332These beautiful Chippendale style chairs were in fantastic shape. Aside from the ho hum cream fabric and the mahogany stain, they were structurally sound and in fantastic condition for vintage chairs. All they needed was a little paint and fabric and voila, new chairs! The set includes 2 armless chairs, and 2 captain’s chairs.  I painted them with the same color as this adorable country style, solid pine table – they make the perfect set for your kitchen or breakfast nook!
