We got a couple of oak chairs from the thrift store for only four dollars apiece. They are really solid, but we didn’t like the color of the fabric on the seat and back so I took them apart and Christina used some of our left over couch fabric to reupholster them. She also sanded them down and re-stained them with linseed oil. They match our couch and rocking chair and they look really nice. We now have all matching furniture in our living room. We paid fifteen dollars for the couch, twelve for the rocking chair and eight for the two chairs, plus about 30 for the fabric and now we have a complete matching set of very sturdy (the couch has an oak frame) living room furniture for about 65 dollars. We are glad that Christina has her sewing machine and that she is so proficient with it. Since I made our coffee table and dining room table and chairs out of scrap lumber all of the furniture in our house cost us much less than $100.
This is all the matching furniture together now
