Old cozy chair

Yesterday, Labor day started out like every other Monday.  Hard to get moving till I had my cup of coffee, type of day.  Once the coffee kicked in, I finished painting a few small decor items from my black wrought iron days. And if you guessed the paint I used was "Annie Sloan old ochre chalk paint" you are absolutely 100% right! I am in love with this color!

During the drying period of my pieces I headed over to the Goodwill store! Yes, GOODWILL! Have you been? I visit their store periodically for new to me treasures! I find that the store down Arizona Ave & Riggs Rd is very neatly up kept, organized and most importantly doesn't have that stankface effect on me when I walk through the doors.  First, I head over to their furniture dept. for antiques. I then go down the glass/candle holder/plates aisles and if I don't find anything there I run through the blanket/sheets/towels aisles.  And down the last aisles and to my surprise I find three pieces I had to have. One was a red plush (& when I say plush, I mean PLUSH!) blanket, a thick chanielle damask pattern throw (I know my fabrics!) and an off white chair cover.  Well if you know anything about chair covers you know that you can't just purchase a chair cover without having measurements and or know what type of chair the cover is for.  Lets just say that I broke those rules! No measurements and had no clue if it would fit any of my chairs. 

I return home and immediately threw all my pieces in the wash and added extra softner!  As soon as the chair cover dried I tried it on one of my wing chairs. I think I rotated the darn thing like 10 times trying to see how it fit, where the arm portion of it was.  I'm not going to lie, it made me a little upset that here I am able to assemble fixtures and I can't navigate my way around this chair cover.  And for the day it defeats me. I wake up in the next morning and am about to call the chair cover a loss when I remember i have a bulky chair in the garage. The chair that is being forgotten and is not being loved.  I head over there and after only two rotations of the cover I figured it out, yay!

You see a wing chair and a bulky chair are obviously two type of chairs and while I can go into the specifics I won't.  I am too excited to know that while it didn't fit like a glove it did give me the look I was after! Ruffled, wrinkled, oversized and overall very cozy. One of those chairs you sink in too, while bundled up in a red plush blanket and sipping on a 2nd cup of coffee type of chair! And who knows, tonight I may just sit in it enjoying a hot cup of chocolate all bundled up in the same red plush blanket, ha! I can't wait for the COLD weather to arrive!
