Can we all just think back to yesterday? Remember the post I did about the fabulous touches I made to my guest room. And how I’m soooo amazing and thrifty and I spruced up a room for $25? Well…as my sister Caroline pointed out to me today. I am a big, fat liar! And the evidence of my liar-ness is right there in the post! Remember this picture:
Well I talked all about the desk. And how it was FREE. But did I ever, even once mention that saucy little chair? Nope. AND…that chair was a craiglist find…for $20. Still pretty cheap, but the fact of the matter is that it nearly doubled the amount I told you yesterday! Yikes. So much for Twenty Dollar Tuesdays!
Frankly though, I really can’t believe I forgot to tell you about this chair, because it really is my favorite thing in that guest room. Like I said, I bought it on craiglist from a little old lady who lived in a trailer. It looked something like this when I bought it:
Dark wood, fancy floral-y seat pad. Not exactly my style. But a quick spray paint job and a new piece of fabric covering the floral pattern and Ta Da!:
I just think it’s so gosh darn cute now! I really do smile almost every time I look at it! And I think it goes with that little desk so nicely. So blog readers, please forgive me for lying to you. And Chair, please forgive me for omitting you. To show my penitence, I’ve written you this limerick:
There once was an ugly brown chair.
That sat in an old lady’s lair.
One lucky day, I took you away.
Now beautiful. (After a spray.)
