This ’n That

Dad left yesterday afternoon; we had a nice visit, and he and Craig did a big project for me that I’ve really been needing to have done. There’s one final step that I’m hoping Craig will finish over the weekend, and then I’ll reveal it.

I still found time to shop craigslist, and ended up with this chair for $20.

IMG_4139 It needs a little work, like another coat of paint and redoing the seat, but it’s heavy and sturdy.

I love the curvy lines, the caning, and the acorn finials. I’m thinking the chair’s ultimate destination will be my bedroom.

Have a great weekend!
