Oh no! Can you contact the supplier and beg nicely? The wedding dress I’d been watching suddenly disappeared from the website and I freaked out!! But I contacted them directly and they made me one anyway. Worst they can say is no 🙂

Also you can do a reverse google image search and see if you can find something similar on the net. I’m on my iphone so can’t do it for you, but go to images.google.com and drag the picture into the box and it’ll pull up similar images and hopefully other sellers 🙂

Hobby lobby has almost those exact ones in wood for 8 or 9 dollars. A can of spray paint and they would be perfect. I used then in the my wedding but I painted them black.

@EffieTrinket:  mine were that tall, they also have some slightly taller. Can’t hurt to go look or maybe purchase one, paint it, and see how it turns out. I wish I hadn’t given them away or I’d show you a picture.

Maybe you could DIY it by buying old chair legs and buying small bases to nail them on to, and spray paint them? May be a cheaper alternative if you look around. Kijiji may be of some help. Stores like lowes and home depot sell chair legs in the wood section. I have no clue how much they cost though.

-EDIT- Apparently this person has bought very cheap chair legs at such stores.

Try Kirkland’s. They always have stuff like that and are reasonably priced.

@EffieTrinket:  do they have to match? 

check out yardsales, goodwill, etc.  you can probably get it cheaper and then you can paint them all to match even though the style will be different.
