I wanted to thank everyone who entered my giveaway! Rafflecopter picked Pam at Moments Like These as the WINNER-congrats, Pam!!
I thought I'd show you a new, unexpected purchase that I recently made.
My hubby Keith has always wanted a leather recliner. We've occasionally looked at them in the past, but they've always been WAY more than we wanted to spend, especially for a 'want' not a 'need.' Enter this baby...
My mom and I walked into TJ Maxx, and when I spotted this leather chair I ran over and gasped at the price tag...we're talking deep clearance! My thoughts went like this:
Well, it can't be a recliner for this price, can it? Yep, it is!
Well, it can't be that comfy for this price, can it? (Sitting down) Oh, soo cushy and comfy!
A scratch on the seat (hence the low price)...no problem, I can take care of that!
I quickly texted a picture to Keith with the price and he said 'Go for it!'
I figured that this would make a nice replacement for the chair that was in our office, which is now in the sunroom, which you can see here. It adds a masculine element to this room, which is appropriate since Keith and I both use this room a lot. I softened the look a bit by covering the seat with a grain sack, and voila, the scratch is 'gone'!
Shortly after we brought the chair in, I found this vintage dresser at an antique shop. I fell in love with its shape and size.
This replaced the shabby table that was here that is also now in the sunroom.
The drawers are great storage for various papers, magazines, and office essentials.
Isn't it great when you least expect it to find something that you've always wanted, and at a bargain no less? One of life's little pleasures!
Thanks for stopping by-have a fantastic day! :)
