One man's trash... :)

This is my daughter Rio and her boyfriend Chase. These two hosted an amazing dinner party last Saturday night! Roger and I, my son Ryne and his girlfriend Devon, Chase's mom, grandma, and aunt were all invited. We had soooo much fun! Rio sets a mean table and Chase is a fantastic cook!

We enjoyed rotisserie chicken, stuffed tomatoes, rice, and salad. So good and so pretty :)

But I have to say, I couldn't get past these chairs!!! Rio and Chase found them in a dumpster in L.A. a few weeks back. They were missing their bases, so Chase made the square bottoms, added casters and Rio painted them the high gloss white to match the chair! How very cool is that!!

Seriously...One man's trash is most certainly another man's treasure... :)


  1. First, Happy Belated Birthday to Rio. What a gem.
    Second, those chairs are sweeeet! love 'em!
    Dor, How crazy is it that you go to dinner parties at your daughter's house? How can it be?
    Love to all

  2. I thought that was YOU! My gosh you look alike, and you look so young, Dorie, not that Rio looks old, you both look like your in your twenty's.
    The food looked wonderful...
    Those chairs rock! Looks like a picture from a high end magazine.
    Take it easy...I'm gonna get busy.
    Goodbye for now,

  3. Seriously, he's a catch. He cooks and makes cool furniture? It's so rare these days that a husband (or boyfriend) actually finishes a project. Or maybe, boyfriends finish things and husbands don't...

  4. and the chairs have wheels...I love that!! Hey, I got my tile at Monterrey.

  5. cute! YUMMMMM! Fun night for you all!

  6. Wow! Those are fabulous chairs - I say they definitely scored!
