Found this chair at a street sale at the end of my street last Saturday. I've been so very excited to share it with you! I haven't gotten anything "big" since I started Thirfty Thursday. And I had no plans to. But I saw this chair at a great price and I had to have it.
This baby replaced our old living room "couchy" chair (which was second hand when we aquired it years ago) and we were more than happy to take said chair to the local thrift. Unfortunately, when the local thrift guy saw it he said: NO WAY. Rude. So, we put our old chair the street with a free sign. 4 days later no one had taken it. I felt so bad for the old thing. It wasn't that nasty...was it? Evidently so. We dragged the old chair back to our dump pile. I guess sometimes things are just bound for the dump. And that is that.
But back to this chair. What do you think...30's? 40's? When I brought her home The Brad said. "Ew." And I said: "EW? Are you (swear word) kidding me? This is an antique, man! Are you blind? And I got it for next to nothing!"
After a nice steam clean, The Brad was much more moderate about the chair and very suprised at its comfort factor. See, this is where The Brad sits every night when the girls are asleep (or not) and we relax for the first time all day. I sit on the couch, he sits on the chair. So this chair had to be comfortable. I knew it was. And that's why I brought it home.
This is vintage, baby. Fits right in our home. Many an ass has sat in this chair. And now those asses are ours. I'm sorry for the profanity. But, if the ass fits, wear it. And ours do. Quite nicely, thank you.
