Musical Chairs

"I thought of a new place for your chairs", my very excited Mom exclaimed when I picked up the phone a couple of days ago. 

I didn't even know I was looking for a new home for said chairs, but ok, I'm open to suggestions. Let's hear it. 

"In your bedroom, next to the bed", she says. 

Hmmm. Interesting. I do already have two chairs and a loveseat in my room, but I don't have anything next to the bed. And I do miss having that little spot to throw the 'I'm too lazy to put my clothes away at the end of the day' clothes. 

So, in one chair goes. Add a borrowed pillow from the loveseat...and we're giving it a try. 

Mr. DD walks in and says, "what's this doing in here?" His tone says, 'it looks ridiculous'. 

But, I kind of like it. A bit of an unexpected twist, which I really do believe every room needs. Otherwise, it just starts to look too designed. If you know what I mean. 

I also like how the chair acts like a mini divider from the bedroom and the dressing area. 

You guessed it - the chair is staying, at least for now. 
One never knows what the future will hold. 
Plus, with fall in the air, I've now got an excuse to update the front porch. Always love a good excuse. 

Thanks, Mom, for your chair brainstorm.

In the living room. 

Just before our daughter made her much anticipated appearance, I had a serious run of good luck on eBay.
One of my purchases included this pair of upholstered Sherrill chairs.

I also scored the white table on Craigslist. It was originally intended for refurbishment and to be sold on, but once I saw it in person, we knew we'd keep it for ourselves.

I've been on the search for new chairs and a table for this side of our living room for quite sometime - I really can't believe it all came together in a matter of weeks. 
I guess that nesting instinct really did kick in! 

Now, this whole side of the living room feels lighter and brighter. 

Check out how it looked just a couple of weeks ago...
So much darker and BROWN.

Now it feels cozy and warm, but still light and bright.

Of course, these chairs didn't look exactly like this when I got them - they received a little update, which I'll share with you later in the week.
