But yesterday, I was out and about with a friend shopping for a bridal shower. We needed a vase for the flowers...good grief they were expensive. We decided to wait to get one - we do have a week before we need it anyway. Then I decided to stop on my way home and look at Good Will - there's always a ton of vases and some are really nice. Plus, I could also look for the book I need to finish off the series I'm reading.
Ok, I did find the perfect vase for $2.99 but I didn't find my book and that's when I should have just gone and paid for the vase but I didn't - I wandered the aisles. [ bad, bad me. ;o) ]
I ended up with 2 farm prints for my B Farm bedroom ( perfect for my decor! ) and then I saw this:
My heart started beating faster....could it be just what I was actually telling my friend earlier I wish had? Oh yes! It was!! It was even sturdy. I leaned over to see what price they had on it and I saw this:
Yep, that's $6.99! Score! Let me tell you, if Ross or Marshall's would of had one while I was there, I'd have paid their price for it. But fortunately for me, those stores didn't have one and I did go to GW. And there she sat. Sturdy if a little worn.
This perfect chair will make the perfect desk chair in my bedroom. It needs a new cover but surely it won't be too hard to make a slipcover in a nice sturdy and washable fabric. I should be able to handle it. I'm going to paint the legs too, while I'm at it. Then Mr. B will have a desk chair and won't have to mess up my decor by pulling over a sitting area chair. Haha, can't have that now, can we?
I can't wait to get started on this chair. It's just what I had in mind. I'm still doing a happy dance. Love it when I find what I need at a
I'm definitely not sorry I ended up at GW. Did you ever break your resolve not to go thrifting and have it turn out good?
Sharing at these fun parties!
