i found them.
in veranda magazine.
well more like on craigslist. (and all 8 chairs for $100!)
but with a little work --which has so far only consisted of popping out the seats and finding a layer of blue velvet like fabric underneath stained cheap cotton-- i'll have these chairs looking like a magazine photo in no time.
p.s. said chairs are actually sitting on our new screen porch. promise a big post about that project soon!!
