My Obsession with/Collection of Metal Lawn Chairs

Well we've got some sticks to burn-wanted to do that on the 4th but it was too windy. I keep several of my chairs around the fire. My husband's working on painting the back fence(that's another story) and you can see how tall the corn already is. Our outhouse in the back (I have a great [past post on that!) Hope you're 4th was Fun!
A pair of these-need to get out them out of barn Bought this one yesterday-couldn't resist the pink! Bought this one last week-different with the smaller scroll back
Fun Yellow This one needs a paint job-bad-I have three so one's off to Ella Maes for the next sale! Two of these-one in red-I put it out for the fall display Two of these-love to have them around the fire pit in pairs

I have three of these in white so one is going to Ella Maes for the next sale. I also have one in red and one in blue for my red/white/blue display! Another chair still in the barn-my favorite color -pink This is probably the most common style of chair I see when antiquing Only have one of these-simple style-needs some attention Shell back style-I have two of these This one needs some TLC -don't know what color to paint?-my dad found this one -I don't have one of these in my collection-so I may have to buy it from him Still sitting in the barn-love the color and extra detail-haven't seen another one of these

Whew -are you tired of looking at these-because I'm tired of posting them. I thought these might be of some interest because they're all so different-like we all are. That's what makes it fun-kinda like putting different chairs around the dining room table!

I usually like all my outdoor furniture to be white-we have a large yard and everything seems cohesive when it's all white. That's why my colored chairs are still in the barn, I only pull them out for special occasions like a party or holiday. These metal chairs are great for my yard because they're heavy enough to not blow away(we don't have a wind block and we see some pretty crazy winds out here on the flat prairie! They're fun to have sitting around-waiting for friends to stop by!

  10. I had no idea that there were so many different styles of the good old metal chair! My grandparents always had some of them, so naturally I had to find some too. I think my favorite is that last one. So fancy!

  16. I love your metal chairs! I rarely see them down where we live. My husband threw my one and only one out several years ago. (He hasn't heard the last of that yet. lol) But if I could I would be a collector too. I really enjoyed looking at your pictures. Nice job!

  17. Oh goodness I love your post today! I am on the hunt for a pair of these chairs! I grew up rocking away on them at my Nana's cottage on Cape Cod. Wish I had them now!! So happy I stopped by ~ thanks for the memories today!

  18. woot! Love ALL the chairs... what a collection. Hope to get some myself one day.
    For now, I'll just enjoy looking at all the different kinds here! Thanks for visiting. Answering your question...yes the scrolly planter wire basket seems old and rusty and chippy. Kind of sharp in some places. But Very French cottage garden looking. Probably will replace the ivy eventually. I was guessing it was vintage because of it's design and condition.
