What do you think about this chair?

I don't have anymore information on the chair, but something about it speaks to me. Not too long ago, I bought from CL, an antique bamboo shelf for my island themed bathroom. Got a good buy on it! :) I was thinking this chair would look good in the adjacent bedroom, that is similar in coloring. I don't know about cost.

Do you think this chair could be old? I am not sure what "real" translates to in the description. lol

Not sure why the link didn't show up. Let me try this again.

There are many faux bamboo chairs, etc. This is bamboo.

RE: What do you think about this chair?

It's a decent looking chair for sixty bucks :) What's the worst thing that could happen? You paint it and put it in the garden!

RE: What do you think about this chair?

I think it's a good deal. The seller says it's real bamboo. Looks like it needs a cushion to me.
I think it would echo what you have in the bathroom nicely...but you will likely have about $175 to $200 in it by the time you get it "tricked out" with new cushion and a throw pillow and a pretty throw draped over.

LOL, isn't that the truth!

I am kind-of over it, though. I first saw the listing right after church and got excited, posted here, and didn't get any responses until checking now. I don't know, maybe I'm just tired.

I'll contact the seller and see what I can find out about condition, etc.. The seat looks cane and I wonder if it could be used without cushion, although it would be more decorative rather than used. I could probably find a ready made cushion that would do. The main thing is condition and price.

Perhaps I should offer $50 if it is in great shape. Not interested if it is not. I'll report back.

RE: What do you think about this chair????

If you are not doing the heavy breathing over the chair....wait a couple of days and offer $25.

RE: What do you think about this chair?

I found a VERY similar chair on eBay. Starting bid is $60, with no bids. The chair is missing a piece or two. After close inspection of CL chair, I think it may be missing some bars in the lower back of chair.

I am going to sleep on it, and then email the seller in the morning.

PS - Showed the chair to my daughter, It's her old room that I would put the chair in. She thinks the chair is just OK.

Thank you!

I am getting bad about linking. LOL
