A New Sitting Area

A new sitting area was created after I visited my friend Mary Alice

to say good-bye to her home that I loved. And, of course the one she loved too.

We were taking a walk upstairs and I noticed her Sitting/TV viewing room a bit sparse.

She sold much of the furniture in that room,

however, there was one lonely remaining chair.

I stated, “hmmmm, I never noticed this chair before.”

“This sweet chair has been in my daughter’s room for many years.”, says Mary Alice.

“I love it!”, I said. “Well, it is for sale.” . . . 🙂

Chatter back and forth . . . . SOLD!

Mary Alice asked where I was planning to put it.

I had two areas in mind, my granddaughter’s room or the guest room.

The guest room?

Yes. The area I have in mind  had a desk  for writing or computer work,

however, I think that area really needs a chair.

And . . . I have the perfect piece to place next to the chair.

A piece that I purchased from the High Point Spring Market.

They were made for each other!

Do you remember what the area looked like before?

The desk/table has been put away and the chair moved across the room

to a combination desk and bedside table.

And here’s the after. Love it!

I am beginning to fluff the rooms for Christmas.

One pillow (and more) at a time.

Have a most wonderful day!!!
