Looks like we got ourselves a little project a-brewing!
I sold the old dining room tulip chairs in order to fund the purchase of six brand spanking new Eiffel bases. I picked them up today and couldn’t be happier.
I found a well priced source via ebay that was AMAZINGLY located just about an hour away from The Brick House. Instead of paying for shipping I just drove over and picked up a set of six black Eiffel bases. They sellers seem like a nice small business that manufactures all sorts of different styles of Eames bases including a selection of wide mounts, rockers, cats cradle and other bent wire based furniture products.
The WEIRDEST thing was that this Ebay seller was located right across the street from my family’s recently defunct boat business. *SPOOKY*
At least I got to stop by and say hello to my mom.
This set is going to be so f*ing awesome.
A little wet sanding, shock mount repositioning and Penetrol rub down and we should be in business.
Posting will probably be very lite round the old Brick House bloggity. Buying chair bases is how I just spent my one day off of work this week…and I’ve had 3 days off (total) since June.
I’m getting crazy withdrawal from not visiting any thrift stores in over a month. When is September coming again? Oh man, this is going to be a lllllloooooonnnnggggg summer.
