While browsing through a favorite vintage shop last week I found an office chair I knew would be just right for my office at home. The shop had been rearranged and when I stepped into one of the rooms with a decor that isn't my favorite, I was certain there wouldn't be anything there for me. I almost didn't go into the room! But there sat THE chair! It was love at first sight! It felt good when I sat in it and in spite of a few squeaks and squawks and groans when I moved around in it, I knew my sweetheart had to check out. He's the expert when it comes to greasing and oiling things and I knew he would know exactly what to do. And it was important for him to feel comfortable in the chair, too. He stopped by the shop later and checked it out and it wasn't long before he arrived home with my 'new' chair. I'm just giving you a sneak peek for now.
I haven't decided exactly how I'm going to fancy it up yet. There will be a cushion, for sure, and maybe a coat or two of paint. It's perfect with the desk in our office. The desk was my father's desk in his church study through the years he served as pastor in several churches. I have plans to repaint it and I think I will paint the chair to match. I love the look of this Pottery Barn desk and chair.
I have planned to paint my father's desk white for a long time. I have collected several inspiration photos over the past few months.
Now that I have the chair I think it's time to move this project closer to the top of my list.
And when I saw Stacey's desk and chair at Red Door Home there was no doubt in my mind that this was exactly what I need to do! If you've never visited her blog, you really must stop by and get acquainted. You won't be sorry!
Don't you think my new chair is just the pièce de résistance? I can't wait to start the renovation of my office room. This chair may be just the motivation I need to move it forward soon.
