I Can’t Resist…An Occasional Chair

There’s just something about a simple chair.  An “occasional” chair that by design and definition is a versatile furnishing in your home. I was looking through some vignettes I’ve pinned over the last several months and a common theme emerged…

Are you drawn to them like I am?

Maybe it’s the Goodwill chair revamped.

Or the flea market chair I spray painted.

Or my grandmother’s slipper chair that graces my Mom Cave.

They just suggest that there’s always room for one more to pull up a chair.

Love that.  In fact, I can’t resist it.  🙂

Happy Friday, friends!  Monday I’ll be back with an update on the Ugly Duckling Dining Room… there’s been progress I can’t wait to share!

  8. Heidi, I love that slipper chair!!…Oh do not get me started with chairs….My hubby counted 18 chairs in the attic…I really gotta do something with that problem!!….Hope you are having a great weekend!!

  9. I love finding that cast off chair with no mate! What to do with it – no body knows – but it’s sure to make it’s way home with me!
