Jackpot! European style chair.

Oct 3rd, 2011

So, my bleeping amazing hubby found something for me the other day, and I have been dying to show you ever since. I might just freak out with excitement. Really, whose husband would bring home a chair like this for his wife? MINE WOULD. I’m lucky.

Just check out this gal:
When he got home with her, I might have done a little jig. Her lines are to. die. for. AND….she is down filled. I keep finding myself in the garage sitting on her while I talk on the phone. You know a chair is comfortable if you go to the garage just to sit on it! Ha ha.

It reminds me of this chair from Layla Grace.

Pretty soon, my version will have a new look. Stay tuned!

Oh, and the best part? MINE WAS $20.00! I’ve been trying to tell ya for 2 years now that decorating can be inexpensive. I hope you are starting to believe me. :) xoxo!
