18 months ago I found this wing chair in a thrift store. It was upholstered in blue fabric and very dirty. I bought it for a song with the intention of having it re-upholstered. After the fact I learned how much re-upholstery cost. Ouch! That’s was I get for being over-eager. Live and learn. Anyhow, I went ahead and had it re-upholstered in white vinyl and now it’s one of my favorite chairs. Unfortunately I have no “before” pictures…this was back before I was in to blogging.
For the past 18 months the chair has sat in what we call the circle room (a room that is a complete circle and functions as who knows what? It really is a glorified hallway that feeds the entryway in to the kitchen and family room. (We have discovered if you stand in the middle of the room and speak the acoustics are crazy!) Since we don’t quite know what the room is or how it functions we stuck the chair there and it always look lonely and out of place.
It now has a new home in my bedroom. It fits in perfectly and is not lonely anymore!
The room is about a 1-2 weeks away from the big reveal. I’ve been scouring thrift stores, Craigslist, a few garage sales in search for the perfect dresser (with the perfect price tag). Something antique looking. Something to balance and contrast the very modern bed that arrived last Friday.
Unfortunately it’s no longer available. Unfortunately, even if it was I wasn’t about to spend $250.+ for it. I read a tip that a knock off was available at Pier 1…there were even pictures. I visited 2 Pier 1’s and called 3 others on the east and west coast. No one had even heard of it. Come on Ebay’ers, anyone interested in putting their’s up for sale?
