I’m not sure what the weather has been like where you are but here we have been having an incredible winter!
Typically winter for me is a lot of rain and gray, foggy days punctuated by a month or so of random snow and ice and yuck. Can you tell I’m not a fan? Then finally one day spring arrives and we get rain for a few weeks, almost continuously, and then suddenly?
The sun gets back from its sabbatical and shines nearly every day and everything comes to life so quickly that you can almost watch it grow in front of your very eyes.
This year though we have had so much more sun than usual and exceptionally mild temperatures. That has, of course, put me into a decidedly “springy” mood MUCH sooner and while I am still unable to be planting things outside, I have to content myself with bringing spring into my home in full force 😊.
Wanna know what I did this past week?
This is what I did. I went shopping. This is the listing that caught my eye.
Now I have horrible luck most of the time on Facebook Marketplace but this week the stars were aligned! Instead of having the listing I was interested in already be snapped up within minutes, I was able to get these lovely vintage chairs!
Aren’t they cute?
They are in nearly perfect condition and I got BOTH of them for $40! Beat that!
The color of them is a little unusual for my typical choice of furniture but I really love the unexpected pop, especially to get the ball rolling on my fresh look for spring!
If I change anything at all about them I might strip the wooden bits back to a natural wood but then again, I might not either. I’m in love with how they look by my fireplace.
You’ve heard of the domino effect though, right?
Now my large gold couch isn’t looking that great with the new chairs. I had planned to re-cover the seat cushions on it and leave the frame as is…..I have this funny feeling I might be taking on my first couch reupholstery project very soon! 😒. I haven’t decided how crazy I’m feeling yet.
In the meantime I think I’ll just sit on the gold couch and look at my “new” chairs because that way I don’t have to look at the couch and chairs together and I can keep my head firmly buried in the sand 😉
Midnight is pretty impressed with the chairs too.
Maybe I should just add some more tulips to my mantel and call it a day 😄
Maybe I should take you for a visit to Emily’s to see what she is doing for spring at her house. Click on the photo below with me.
