What I Got: Oval Back Chairs

Rebecca and her husband came over to my house on Sunday to work on some projects for me.  I'm not kidding when I say I am extremely lucky to count these two as friends.  Ty is working on updating my kitchen island by enclosing the stucco side in wood and finishing it out in trim (and attaching my wood counter top!), and Rebecca was finishing up painting my thrifted table that I got for a song at a local thrift store.
They are good people, and I am one lucky girl.  My house is coming along so nicely, and it is going to be even nicer with the addition of the chairs I picked up at TJ Maxx and Marshall's.

Originally Rebecca and I saw some of these chairs in a gorgeous blue, almost the exact same color as the walls in my formal living room, and we thought they would look so great in the kitchen eating area.  They pull the wall color from the adjacent room into the kitchen and family room area.
They were $100 each and they only had 2 of the blue and a bunch of the linen (like above).  I waited, unsure, until Rebecca convinced me that 2 blue and 2 linen would look great too.  So I headed over to the store and picked up the chairs- each marked down to $70.
When I got them home, I discovered that I also really loved the linen ones in the formal dining room, so I headed back to TJ Maxx to pick up the other two they had had in stock.  Only one was left.  I bought it anyway, hoping that Marshall's still had these chairs.
I went over there after work and they had a blue one.  Rebecca and I had been talking about how great it would be to have all blue, so I snatched it up.  I then asked Kim H., a Marshall's worker whom I now love, if they had any in the back.  She was so sweet and said she would check for me, and would bring what she had even if she had to walk down stairs with it cause she liked my outfit.  (I told you that I now love this girl, right?!)  She came back with another blue chair!  I was ecstatic!  I could not believe my luck.  I now have a complete set of blue chairs for my kitchen table, and am only one short in the linen color for the dining room.
My fingers are crossed that my good luck will continue!
This was such a great way to start the week!
