Did you ever meet my chair?
I ended up with this chair because I was brainwashed into loving it.
In other words... The decorator came in and told me how fabulous it was and I looked deeply in her eyes and went "Ok" And it stayed. And my check was cashed at lightening speed.
A week later I woke up and went "what the hell!" But I was stuck with a "fabulous" chair.
I tried loving it. I tried finding it's positive qualities..
It will hold me and two dogs comfortably....
And it stayed in my living room for 5 years. I forgot to add that it matched. It was color coordinated with my other living room furniture. It was hard for it not to be, can you see? It's pretty busy. And it's also BAROQUE. Which is what I was after buying all of my furniture from the decorator haha.
Anyhoo... it was a mistake. We shouldn't have gotten it. I should've been tough and taken it back. And when we got a new sofa recently my husband and I moved this chair to our bedroom but it didn't fit in there either. It didn't match my room and it was just awkward. So, I'd decided to try and sell it on consignment. I went down to my local business that sells household items for me, The Red Door Galleria, and my friend wasn't there. So I wandered next door just to look around and I saw a chair! I sent a picture to my husband and said "this could work in our room. The price is $145." He called me. It seemed like a pretty good price, and we thought if we didn't use it in our room we could use it somewhere. The kid's apartment perhaps.
So, I got my little recliner for $145 and loaded it in the back of my soccer mom car and brought it home. It was a good buy I thought! It was clean, had nailhead trim, and believe it or not it's the very first recliner we've ever owned!! We moved it into our room to try it out in there. And then something happened.
I started liking my big chair again. I think my little used chair works with the old big chair.
I'm still fighting my old feelings of buyer's remorse and this new feeling is strange... but for whatever reason I'm holding off on selling it for now. It's still very busy but when you actually walk into our bedroom now it has a very cozy feeling. It's been fun to sit and read in our room.
So, this is where we stand for now....
