Last week I spotted a chair in an estate sale ad and when I arrived she was still there in a storage room and just waiting for me to take her home for $14.
She was fairly sturdy. Maybe not sit in every night at the kitchen table sturdy, but sturdy enough for what I wanted to use her for.
The thing I loved the most about the chair was the shape of the back, and the color of the wood there, which was worn a bit from use.
Originally I thought I might have the leather seat recovered. Or maybe even attempt to do it myself (yikes!), and I may do that someday.
But for now I found a linen seat slipcover with a skirt on Etsy that I thought would be just perfect.
I put the chair in the skirt in my office, because my family always seems to find me there and if there are more than two of us in the room there is nowhere to sit.
I’ve also been feeling that the office – which is really light – could use a little more heft. Is heft the right word? No? How about substantial?
Hopefully you know what I mean.
