this chair is cat approved....
The wife recovered some of our kitchen chairs Sunday.
They are old fashioned, made in Milwaukee! Actually, we have five chairs, 3 are sisters then 2 cousins. You see below 2 of the 3 sisters and one cousin below. The dark cousin was actually purchased.
The others were filched!
Well, OK, 20 some years ago the wife had the first cousin when we got together. It still has "property of !!!!!! University" on the bottom. But she got it at a yard sale! Near that campus...could somebody have filched it for their apartment and sold it later for 5 bucks? It is a typical 70+ year old library chair. Throw it off the top of a building (as frats might!) and it would still look good as new.
Then the 3 light colored oak ones, which you see Spike upon there, with one upside down. We lived next to University ?????? for a few years and 3 of these oak beauties were on a dumpster....they say "property of YYYYYY University" themselves.
The last one, which has a wood seat and does not need recovering, I actually bought from an office store...it just so happens that the chairs match our oak table with lion's feet very nicely :) and, well, the cat matches the table with lion's feet too!
