The Chairs that Got Away…


Happy Monday everyone! I have a sad story for you this morning… I have been halfheartedly looking for some chairs for our living room for awhile now… halfheartedly, because we already have chairs but they aren’t very comfortable. We can’t seem to afford anything that I really want, so for now I just keep my eyes open at thrift stores and on Craigslist. Well, this weekend I was searching ‘chairs’ on Craigslist (because I also will need one for the baby’s room), and I found a pair of beautiful ones! And affordable! They sort of looked like the ones above, only the upholstery was white and the wood on the chairs was a bleached pine colour. Amazing, right? I emailed the lady right away and she said to give her a call at 2:00pm. Well, I already had plans to go to the lake with Dustin and a friend that day, so I just programed her number in my phone and off we went. I must have been having a really good time because I only remembered to call at 3:30 as I was blissfully floating in the water. I quickly swam to shore to call her but alas, they were already gone! I was really bummed, especially because I think I was the first one to contact her, so if I had just remembered to call, they could’ve been mine. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. I guess that’s the nature of the hunt. So the search for great chairs continues… Have you ever let a great find ‘get away’?

Here are some other chairs I would be happy to find at a thrift store or on Craigslist…
