My chair returned from the upholsterer just days before Christmas. I love how fresh and clean it is now!
As if that wasn't enough excitement, I scored a DEAL at Target!! Notice the pair of ottomans under the desk?
Well, I have been searching high and low for a pair of these babies for months! I had included similar ones in the design board I created in November.
I had all but given up on getting any because everything I found was ridiculously expensive. The ones pictured above are from Ballard Designs, and they were going to run around $600 for the pair. And, those were less than most I'd found. I mean, at the end of the day they're just small wooden boxes with fabric and nailheads. Right? I contemplated making some myself, but then I came to my senses. Plus, nobody gave me a table saw for Christmas. "You'll cut your finger off," they said.
Imagine my surprise and utter glee when I was strolling the aisles at Target looking for shelves, and spotted these lovely storage ottomans for ..... wait for it...... $59.99 each. Run. Don't walk to the nearest Target. They are not available online.
The fabric color wasn't my first choice and the nailhead trim isn't perfection. However, they go well with the colors I'm going to do in the room, and I actually think they look pretty darn good. And, for that price, they're perfect for me! I also figured they'd be easy to recover down the road. Easier than building them from scratch, that is. Oh, and did I mention the top comes off for storage?
Things are moving along, albeit at a snail's pace. I painted the back of the cabinets and I've got the fabric for the new pillows. Now I just need to find someone to actually make the pillows.
I'm under budget on the chair and the ottomans. Hoping this lucky streak continues!
Scored any deals lately? I love to hear about a good bargain!
