Shopping + Thrifting


Okay, so… A) That box was H-E-A-V-Y. B) It was in a few more pieces than I thought! In light of these facts, I decided to wait for Greg to get home from work before I tried to do anything with it.

We started to lay out all of the pieces when we noticed Bentley was under the impression that we had bought him a new, swanky dog bed. Obviously, he was mistaken, but that didn’t stop him from trying to convince us otherwise…

First, we laid out all of the pieces. I have to say, I’m glad I waited for Greg. Β It was definitely a two-person (or one Greg) job.

About 15 minutes later, ta da!

It’s a little more cream than we expected, but that doesn’t bother us much. Under some light, it’s cream, and under other light, it’s off-white. It’s also a little lower than we expected, but that’s 100% okay on both counts. It looks great with the paint color and the floors! Β We’re absolutely ecstatic with this online find!

It has a few places here and there that are squished from being in the box for so long. After it hangs out in the room for a bit, it will bounce right back.

Overall, we love the chair and are really anxious to dress up the rest of the room in time for my Grandparent’s visit in a couple of weeks!

    Oh, I LOVE it! I think the fact that it’s lower than you thought is a good thing. That’s good for putting on shoes and stuff.

    That’s a really great Overstock find! Overstock is kind of like Craigslist. You have to search and search until you find a really good deal. Looks like you found one!

    If the “squished” corners of your seat cushion don’t correct themselves and your cushion has a zipper, you can insert thin layers of foam to correct the situation. Adds reinforcement and no one ever has to know:) It works! It’s a beautiful chair.
