The Chair(s)


When I showed you my "school room" makeover, I mentioned that I was working on the chairs. Well, really, I want chairs, but right now it's just CHAIR.
The one I re-did looked like the one below, only it had a busted out cane-seat with a replacement black faux leather one.

Before:



After:

Yay!

I am looking for another chair. Two chairs fit at the school desk and I want them to be different, but both red. Preferably I would like it to be wooden so that I can paint it the same color as the other one. And I only want to spend a few dollars on it (under $20 - but hoping for $10 or $15.) So I'll have to find it at a yard sale or a second hand store. If any of you have a lead - please let me know!

I have also thought about purchasing this chair (pictured below) but I don't know if it will be sturdy. The price is perfect, the color is perfect, but it looks a little flimsy. 
What do you think?

I LOVE your red chair! And that Ikea chair would be fantastic as long as it would hold up! Ryan is ALWAYS tipping his chair up on 2 legs...I wonder how long it would last through that kind of thing. :)

Emet tips his chair too! SO annoying. We have actually broken chair legs that way in this house. Maybe the plastic one would have to be for Elijah...
