I am taking my living room transformation in steps.
Baby steps to some.
Affordable steps to me.
You saw my two Craigslist chairs.
And I found two other Craigslist chairs, to replace my old slip-covered ones.
So, I am getting a little closer to my “transformation”.
The wall color and window treatments will be changing soon.
As soon as I can get my rear in gear, that is.
The chairs were 100.00 each. They were asking 175.00 each. They are velvet and like new. Extremely nice quality and I cannot remember what they said they paid for them. I haven’t even looked for the name brand. I had to drive to Charleston to pick them up. I didn’t take my trailer thinking they were smaller. When I saw them I knew I was in trouble. The sweet lady selling them was a new young mother. She lived in a gorgeous home and for once in my life……I felt a little po-dunk. Po-dunk because she was sweetly struggling to help me carry these chairs to my small suv and they were not going in after trying for about 15 minutes. I finally decided to try them upside down. That worked by us getting in the car and struggling to pull them in and “piggy back” them. She was carrying her nursery monitor to make sure her sleeping baby didn’t wake up as she was trying to help me load my chairs. I felt like a dork. Then upon leaving I stepped in their huge dog bowl and soaked my left leg and shoe. We were carrying the second chair and you could hear the splashing and bowl upturn. She kept saying, in a muffled voice from the other side of the huge chair, that she was so sorry and should have put her dog bowl up. I kept saying, in a muffled voice from the other side of the chair, that no…I was sorry etc. It was a HEE-UGE bowl of water. I didn’t see a great dane anywhere but I don’t know what kind of dog they must have been watering. My leg was soaked to about my knee, no lie, and my shoe was squishing. I sheepishly paid her, as she sweetly said that we both had our morning work out and offered me paper towels. I thanked her and she sweetly called me “mam” which sealed the deal. I was an old, po-dunk, dork.
But at least I have my chairs.
What do you think my next step should be?
Any thoughts or suggestions?
I would love to hear your ideas!
