Love me some sales

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

I always feel like a good sale is something to write home about. You walk out of the store feeling slightly victorious. Oh wait, is that just me?

As you loyal followers know, Russell made me a craft desk a good while back (go here for a reminder). Due to life's busy-ness and general hectic nature, it still has not been used, mostly because I had to paint, re-paint, yada yada yada. And then I didn't have a chair. The only chairs we own go with our dining table, which is one of those high bar-stool height tables, which are cool and all, except when you need an average height chair.

So then I decided I'd make a chair! Brilliant, Camille! I bought a $5 chair at a thrift store, stripped, re-painted, re-covered, and tried to put back together. And then it looked H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E. I hated it. I love being crafty, except when you fail. Then it's not so fun.

I almost bought a chair at Target for $30. But then I didn't. Today during my lunch break I went by one of my favorites, West Elm, and saw this little beauty (the exact chair that Target tried to rip off) marked down from $79.99 to $31.99. SOLD! I know it's nothing special, but it's white, sleek, simple, surprisingly comfortable, and everything I wanted to complete my craft desk. Let the crafting begin!
