Last weekend, while visiting my parents in the Hill Country, my Mom and I headed to Wimberley Market Days for some shopping fun. Market Days is similar to Canton, but not quite as big. I told my Mom to keep her eyes peeled for a little chair for my nook.
She has that "Mom eye"...do you know what that is? I have yet to gain that trait because I am not a Mom, yet, but one day I will have the powers to spot/find/fix anything my child asks. I remember searching long and hard for things that "are nowhere to be found, Mom!" and then, like magic, my Mom finds it. Exciting and frustrating all at the same time. I guess my time will come.
Anyways, I told her I was looking for a chair and what do ya know? She found one. And not just one, because there were hundreds, but she found the one. Go figure! She spotted a little wooden chair for eight dollars!! I was in shock because we had seen numerous chairs veryyy similar and they were at least $40 because they were "antique."
Right when we pulled in the driveway of our house we unloaded everything in the garage. We didn't even go inside and Chris was ready and willing to recover the chair I had bought! Score! I swear I am turning my man into a DIYer. He is more and more amazed each time I bring home trash and turn it into treasure. He is also happy that I don't buy anything unless I feel it is the best deal. This chair was a great deal. He likes getting involved and I love watching him complain about buying trash, and then loving it in the end!
A whole new chair for $10. Now we're talkin' my language!
Have you ever found the perfect little chair? Ever recovered a chair cushion??
