It's been a long time since I have bought any furniture. Oh I've bought pillows....art....accessories but most of the furniture I have has been around for about 10 years or so.
In the corner of my small keeping area I have a slipcovered wing back chair that I bought at a flea market probably 15 years ago. It's a great place to enjoy some sunshine and chat on the phone.
About 6 months ago I sat down...the leg broke and the corner crashed into the window and broke a pane. Yikes....I might want to lay off the sweets.
In my defense it was just old...like me:)
I glued it....no worky.
So then it just became the broken chair in the corner with caution tape on it.
You can see it in the back corner of this picture.
And in this shot.
It happens to be a great little area to change up.....which you can see I do....quite often.
So....I needed a replacement. Not just any chair mind you but I wanted tall. And comfortable.
You would think that in my graveyard of chairs in the basement that would not be a problem....but most of them are occasional chairs.
So I was keeping my eyes open for something and the other day I saw a chair pop up on a facebook page from Stanton Home Furnishings down at the West End.
Big sale. Huge sale. 1/4 of the original price. Tall.
It was chair karma. I called...."Is it still there?" "Yes but we can't hold it". K....now what.
Saturday....husband home. No sneaking. "Honey wanna go out to lunch?" "Plus I need to go look at a chair". Did not say for who.
As we were carrying it out....he looked at me and said "Who is this one for?" I froze for a second but looked him straight in the eye and said in the most intimating voice I have "us". Then I just listened for 15 minutes to why we DO NOT need anymore furniture.
By then it was paid for .... in the car....possession.
She is adjusting quite well to her new space!
Course I had to shine up this area a little....it's what we do right?
And there you have it.......wait for a bargain...don't be impatient.
Now I have to go work on the ORC room....which is going to require hanging pictures into plaster walls.
Not so much fun.
Have a great Saturday...
