Out with the old, In with the...Old.


Remember my dumpster chairs? They have moved homes this week. I grew up moving. I know what it's like. Change is good, people can adapt to change well, better than you think. You learn and grow when you experience change. Which is why I'm not going to get all hung up and emotional about letting these chairs go, although Sally said I looked like I was about to cry right after the lady said, "I'll take 'em." I honestly didn't expect anyone to buy them. But I'm glad someone else was as fond of them as I was. Furniture likes change too, I'm sure these dumpster chairs are so sick of me bloggin' about them. Anyway, moral of the story, a lovely lawyer is getting some pretty cool new office chairs, and some super cool lucite nesting tables to go in between.

So, after this weekend I have some big holes in my living room. Sure enough, not even 24 hrs after our sale ended, my girl Sally was hittin' the shops again. She sent me pics of these. I nabbed em up. I'm thinking purple. Or chartreuse plaid. Or something wild. Let the fun begin, again!

Those look like some sexy lounging chairs too. No freckles please. Keep those outside for first year at least;)

I'm so excited to see what you are going to do with these! Although, I have to admit, I'm super sad the ikat ones are gone. I loved them!

Meg said...

I loved them too. I'm sad too C. Don't worry, these will turn out great too!

I can't wait to see these spiffed up and given a new 'do. They'll look incredible! This post makes me want to sell all my own goods and start over.

I love what you did with the first chairs - can't wait to see what happens with the second set.

I will always think of you in your Mad Men get-up lounging in those chairs. Can't wait to see the new ones!

Meg said...

Aw, those ikat babies were gorgeous but as you say, change is good and you'll surely create something spectacular out of the new pair.
Can't wait to se the morph.
Cheers, Alcira
