This was delivered to my house last weekend via Terry’s Delivery Service (thanks Dad!):
On a recent trip to visit “Grandma Amy” (who isn’t my Grandma in particular, but she is collectively just known as Grandma Amy), my dad and stepmom brought back a few pieces of furniture, including this chair.
I sat in it and fell in love! It’s the perfect size, not too wide and not too narrow; not too short and not too tall. And it’s so comfy! It’s got a bit of a bounce to it and tilts back just right when you sit down. I told Alex I wanted to adopt it and I think he thought I was c.r.a.z.y. We compromised, I promised that if it didn’t fit well in our house we would sell it or give it away… which translated to, if I can convince you to let it come through our front door, I’m sure I can convince you to let it stay. Also, my stepmom wanted to get it out of her garage before my dad convinced her that it went well in their living room in a way similar to how I convinced Alex (hello, where do you think I learned my negotiating skills?). And boy was I right about the chair. I wasn’t there to accept the delivery, but the gracious delivery man (thanks again Dad!) said a certain someone *CoughAlexCough* sat in it and said “wow, this if comfy!”
You might be surprised to hear that the fabric you see is actually a slip cover. Yep. I’ll leave it to your imagination to picture what could possibly be under that lovely golden-yellow bird motif. I promised Alex we’d recover it (part of my negotiation) – it would be a new sewing adventure for me! But, up against the Mojave Gold (official Behr paint name) walls in our family room, I sort of like the golden chair. Alex still feels otherwise.
We’ve got so many projects going on right now that it’ll be that color for a while. Then we’ll see. It would be a fun sewing project though.
PS. Can you tell the dogs like the chair? Jack says it’s a great place to sit and play Farmville, surf Facebook, and write blog posts. Extra bonus that I fit in the chair with him to help. What can I say, he’s a busy dog but lacks opposable thumbs!
