(this is the OTHER original chair...to give you an idea of the color. I will announce his transformation when it comes through) At some point I got a hankering to reupholster them and for a fleeting moment, I decided I was going to do it. Luckily, 3 minutes later, I remember that a good friend, Brian from VonTundra has mad skills in departments I've never even seen. He needed the work and I needed sexier chairs. We both got super busy and more time went by than we had originally planned; so when he brought back the first chair this week, looking as hot as it did, I was ecstatic.
I immediately set it up in the corner. Proud of his work and my space, I sat down and remembered that I do actually like to breathe. It's Friday now; I feel like I've been sitting in this perfect tiny chair since he dropped it off on Tuesday. I have truly missed this chair and now that we took her shopping for new clothes, I can tell she feels more at ease in the space---she feels special. And I feel special sitting on top of her. I love my little corner. A place to calmly work, to reflect, and to remember how great this life can be.
A new amazing friend, Erin, from Design for Mankind sent me a package this week. I LOVE snail mail, btw (address is listed in the contact form...ahem). It was the sweetest thing ever. She sent me some art, a sweet note, and her magazine (mankind mag), which is a work of art in itself. I highly recommend going straight to the site and downloading for your own collection.
I moved my tiny table next to my newly dressed tiny chair and placed my new art mag on top to make my perfect new little corner.
I think we all need to find our own little corners every once in awhile.
