Folding Bistro Chairs

My family says I am on my way to becoming a crazy chair lady.  That means I don't collect cats (yet), but I have a hard time walking by chairs.  I must have a special obsession with placing pairs of chairs outside. There are two seats by our front door, two chairs outside a decorative French door in the front of our house, two rockers on our back porch, two patio chairs outside our bedroom, and two chaise lounges by our pool.  I'm all for two people sitting down and visiting.





So, when I found myself in IKEA on Saturday, and I saw adorable folding French bistro chairs for $15 a piece, I walked by them - not.


I bought two of course.  As I drove home (patting myself on the back), I wondered where I was going to put them.  Worse case scenario, I figured I could store them for extra seating at a party.




Then, as I drove in the driveway, I saw the perfect spot.  Our back door opens out to a porte-cochere.
It is the best place for potted plants in the summer, since they are protected from direct sun all day.



Now there are two places to sit there, too.  Thank goodness.

Have a great day!

Heartfully,

Eilis

    1. Hi Lynda,
      I was just showing pictures from old posts, so I made them small. You make a good point. I'll fix them. Thanks!

  5. Eilis,
    Chairs... love them, too. These $15 bistro chairs are perfect for your spot. They go so well with your stone walls. Being right outside your door also makes them a perfect place to set down your bag of groceries as you use your keys to open the door.

  8. I like all your chair settings. The new ones from Ikea are great- I have never been to their store but somehow I think I won't get out the door empty handed when I do! You have a beautiful home and back patio area.
