John has been relentlessly searching Craigslist for a wing back chair for the "dude den" downstairs. He finally found one, so we trekked out to Mt Juliet yesterday & bought it. It's a lot bigger than a typical wing back chair, so it wouldn't fit in the back seat of his car, like we'd hoped... We somehow got the big blue beast strapped to the top of the awesome-mobile & took off towards our next chair destination. Why we thought we could fit 3 chairs into John's Maxima is beyond me, but we somehow pulled it off.
Carolyn gets credit for the orange chairs. She knew I was looking for orange accent pieces for the living room & found these gems on Craigslist. Craigslist is where it's at people! Initially, I was only going to buy 1 of the orange chairs, but I got there & felt bad breaking up the team. One is in the living room. There's not really room for 2, so I've got to figure out where to put the 2nd one, but I love them. Thanks, C-Bass!
So yesterday we left the house at noon & finally made it back home around 4pm. It took us so long because we couldn't go over 40 mph & everytime we stopped at a red light, John jumped out to make sure the big blue beast was still affixed to the top of the awesome-mobile. I honestly can't believe we made it home with all 3 chairs, but we sure as shit did! We're kind of awesome that way.
Happy Labor Day!
