Office Flip

As the old saying goes, “the quiet before the storm” meaning all is quiet before the storm hits.  Well, for this post, I’m flipping that quote because of my sister’s office makeover.  It was literally the storm before the quiet. … Continue reading

Patience is a Virtue

Good morning all!  I hope you had a fantastic week.. It’s hump day and I’ve got something to show you.  You know how I keep joking there’s a thrift fairy that floats around me, but seriously….I’m really starting to believe it’s true.  Patience is truly a virtue.  I’ve been looking for a chair for my office space ever since I completed it (you can see the transformation here) I’d been contemplating recovering the chair I’m using but had to face it.. it was too big, however, since I had it around, I’ve been using it until the right one came along.   I needed a chair that wouldn’t eat alot of space and yet be comfortable.  I visited my sister in Jersey this past week and was itching to get to a Goodwill.  Well we chucked on down to one in Springfield on Route 22.. and guess what I found as soon as I walked in the door.  YES!!  The perfect chair.  Ok.. I didn’t take the picture at Goodwill (battery died) but got it home and here is my Goodwill find.

 

I researched it and discovered it’s an Ikea Tobias chair that retails for $100.00.

The chair fits perfectly and it’s very comfortable.  It makes my cozy little office space feel more open.

 

Well the absolute best part of it.. I paid $14.99 for it!!!

Lol!!!  Yes!  So, as I say, patience is a virtue.. eventually you’ll find what you’re looking for at the right price.

 

A total score!!!
