Today I accomplish #89, Own a set of "Barnes & Noble" chairs!


Both the hubs & I have always wanted a set of big cushy chairs, like they used to have at Barnes & Noble before they realized making people too comfortable was just bad for business. Sadly, they're not cheap. But I found a great deal at Slumberland on Sunday night, and now we finally have a set! They are a deep red that goes well with my big area rug, and it makes the space feel so much more livable.

Here is the "before" picture of half of our living room, you'll note it's pretty plain and open and not very usable. Don't get me wrong, a lack of furniture is great for parties, there's nothing to move or protect, but as far as daily living, we just haven't made much use of this room without a lot of seating.

But now...


Tah Dah!

How great is this?!?!?
I'm desperately coveting ottomans now, but I'm considering this enough to check if off my bucket list - and start using my living room more! Right now I'm procrastinating on going back to work and curled up in one with all the windows open, it's so nice and breezy and sunny. The dog is curled up on the couch slowly pulling all the stuffing out of a canadian goose toy. If only this weren't a weekday, I could sit here for hours!

I'm in love!

Prying myself back out of this chair to go back to work is almost unthinkable...

Congratulations on the chairs! That is SO not what I was expecting...but they look awesome nonetheless!
