Clutter Up Now!




I love decluttering and it seems that many others do; we never see a post about "Clutter up now!"
That is, until now.  The two chairs above were too hard to resist when my parents offered them to us.
That is, because they  have history and they are beautiful.  They are spindle back chairs, some date back to the 1900's.  They came from farms in Barkly East, South Africa; one of them came from a farm in our family.

I am curious about the bottoms...are they finished or will you be recaning them?

Chairs definitley worth keeping with their history.

Yes, they are finished. They have cow hide woven on the seat..I have seen photo's of other chairs like this with intact bases.

They do seem more decorative than comfortable ... But lovely to have some famy history pieces.
