Fitting In

I got this great chair for $5 this past weekend. A local store is closing down and the man is selling all of his wares for cheap. He had the chair marked at $15 and when he saw me admiring it he said he'd sell it to me for $5.

He said he'd had it in his shop for three years and had used it to prop the door open with almost the entire three years.

The chair has a crack in the seat. The entire chair looks weathered and run down. I think it is beautiful. It is a pretty solid chair. I think the man said it was teak.

The man thought it was funny I liked it so much and asked what I would do with it and I told him I wasn't quite sure, but that it would find it's proper place in our home soon enough.

That evening Judah helped Paul make pizza for supper, so we pulled the chair into the kitchen and used it for Judah to stand on.




I think it kind of fits being in our kitchen as a chair for the boys to stand on to reach the counters. Kinda cutesy. But I'll be trying it out in other places around the house too, seeing if I can find the perfect place for our new chair.


*The house update will be done sometime today or tomorrow!! I totally missed it yesterday due to the boys being under the weather.

Jess,

Sorry to hear the boys weren't feeling good -- hope it's better today.

You always get such great bargains and it's fun to read about them!

Thanks for letting us non-bloggers comment, too. I know a lot of people disable the non-bloggers from being able to make comments but it's nice to be able to come here and respond to all your beautiful entries and photos. Your house is beautiful.
