I love chairs. I really do. If there’s a chair on the sidewalk with a sign that reads “FREE” there’s a pretty good chance it’s coming home with me. Sometimes, although not often enough according to my husband, I reject a chair. Yes, even I have chair standards. Now, what’s funny about this chair, is I saw it and didn’t pick it up because it looked like too much work. My husband DID pick it up and brought it home. Do you see the irony here? He doesn’t like all of my chairs but he contributes to the obsession?
The chair arms are too ugly here and I wonder what’s underneath all that vinyl?
Oh, another bad discovery…so many little staples and nails. This equals too much work.
Someone really wanted the “pleather” to stay put!
Another not very good sign was the lack of interesting wood underneath all of the vinyl and pleather.
I didn’t end up keeping this chair. I stuck a sign on it in my front yard with a sign that read “FREE” and within a day, it was gone. You’d think I’d stop bringing chairs home but no. I just hung one from a big nail in our garage. I hope nobody notices…
What do you like to collect? Do you like to bring home junk and turn it into treasure? Are your eyes drawn to “free” signs like mine?
