mine vs. theirs

these are my chairs.  (given to me by a friend.  aren't i a lucky girl.)
i'm swooning over these chairs.  aren't they gorgeous.
i want these chairs.  i want these chairs real bad.
and my chairs could be these chairs.
just paint the frames black.
reupholster the seats and backs in a similar fabric.
easy peasy...but...there's always a but....
i can't get the seats and backs off my chairs.  i even took them to an upholsterer.
just to get the seats and backs removed.
he wouldn't touch them.
he said the seats and backs were glued on.  tight.  real tight.
i'm tempted to take a sledge hammer to the bottoms and backs and pound away.
because when my chairs look like these chairs my dining room will be complete.
and then i could post pictures.
if i could take pictures.
another story.
i'll keep you posted though on my demolition.
i'm determined to get those chairs.
