It's my Birthday and I'll Buy Chairs if I Want To!

Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend! Today is especially wonderful for me because it's my birthday!!!

And what better way to celebrate your birthday than giving yourself a sweet new chair from craigslist?

No better way IMHO!

I got this beaut of the craig for only $70! The upholstery, while not my ideal, is cute enough and in good shape. I will be making the orange work for now. It's in a long line of upholstery projects so it will just have to wait!

In other exciting news my couch finally came yesterday!!!

I've been waiting on it for over two months. The only problem is the pillows along the back are not what I requested, poo. It's supposed to have only two long back pillows instead of a bunch of smaller ones. But I contacted them and I'm sure they'll fix it in a jiffy!

And what's even better is the whole thing is completely machine washable! That's right people! How awesome is that? The cushions are super soft and comfortable. The sofa is made by Best Slipcover company. They are great because everything is totally custom. 

You choose the body you like, choose from an array of fabrics, skirt/no skirt, cushion configuration, leg color and they make it right here in the US of A. 

And the good things just keep coming too! You've heard me go on and on about my favorite home store, located in Houston, called High Fashion Home. Well they had a contest and the winner gets a $200 gift card and I WON! My mom and I already have a plan to go down and shop. Hopefully I'll pick up the fabric for my wing chairs finally!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend lovers!
