    I too feel exactly the way you did about them, but I do think when do right they are great! Your find is perfect!

  2. cassie @ hi sugarplum! says:

    I'm not a director's chair person either…but for that price, maybe! It'd be fun to paint a chevron or something jazzy on canvas. You should do it and show the rest of us! 🙂

  3. Michelle says:

    wow, those are great looking chair for $15! And at Lowe's of all places. I have been searching for chairs for the dining room table I just built. Might be a good fit! The price sure is right!

    I just had a conversation about director chairs yesterday, Great minds and all that. I think they are so much better than those plastic stackable chairs that people use on their deck. These fold up and can be put away until needed so I think they are great and what a great price. I purchased two black wrought iron ones with natural canvas and they look pretty cool on my back patio!! Love this post< Kathysue

    my daughter has been lobbying for one of these as a desk chair, your post is kinda making me rethink my "NO"!

    Wow, what a deal. And super cute! These pictures prove that you can't underestimate the drama of a director's chair!

    I love the clean lie of a director's chair, but I am curious how comfortable they are!

  9. Hope Chella says:

    I love those chairs and your blog 🙂 xx

    I have such a weakness for director's chairs. My fave purchase was a set of four for a salon I did with long white slipcovers. So fun. I have to confess, though, that with the inexpensive ones I've bought, they never quite work out – everyone is sort of afraid to sit on them and they seem low. But still, at that price, you've got very little to lose 🙂

    I am definitely on the fence about them but like you said for that price, maybe they deserve a closer look! I like another person's comment about using them on the patio…definitely a better choice than plastic stackables!

  12. Shannon says:

    Get out of my head! I JUST bought one yesterday from Lowe's for my guest room makeover. I needed a chair for the desk and didn't want to spend a lot. You cannot beat 15 bucks! I went with the black frame and green canvas. LOVE it.

  13. Lisa says:

    Such a great idea for extra guest seating. I'm a little on the fence about them, but the $10 price is a motivator!!

  14. paula says:

    love these always have. I have learned that only smaller people should sit in them, they snap easily, ha!

    I'm putting my shoes on right now to drive to Lowes!

  16. Mackenzie {Design Darling} says:

    a great price for testing the waters! you could totally make them fabulous with new upholstery.

  17. Hilary Dow-Ward says:

    So I went to Lowe's as promised and bought two of the white/white chairs. Best $13 bucks spent EVER. They are very sturdy, and are quick to fold up and put away. I thought I was going to have to spend the afternoon assembling them…but nope, I had them out of the box and set up in less than a minute! Three cheers to you for showing off this fabulous chair! I love it.
    I'm a sizable person, and I'm not one bit nervous to sit myself down in this little gem!

    Great find before. Even better with the lower price

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
