I finally dropped off all those necklaces I created for that wedding party and got the final payment on those.
I was feeling a little rich for about half an hour, that is until I decided that I needed a new chair. I had been searching for a new chair because we rearranged the living room and that made the one chair that we had, too big for the only place it would fit.
So after seeing lots of furniture online (for $699 and up), I decided to go over to The Brick.
The good thing was that they had a nice brown leather chair on sale, and it was a small enough size to fit in the area where the old chair is. I’m just a little concerned that replacing the beige chair with a brown chair is going to make the living room look really dark, especially considering that most of the furniture in there is black leather (except for the pull-out couch that’s a browny colour too).
Anyway, while I was there I found this beautiful leather coffee table. Brown with brown cushions on top of it where you can put your feet up if you want, but the cushions turn over into trays for when you’re serving something to your guests (ya, guests, we have a lot of guests).
But best of all, there’s a whole bunch of storage space in there. So I’m replacing the antique trunk off the Aquatania, that we had built up to store our DVDs, with this new storage leather coffee table. I’m still going to keep the trunk, but over by the wall in the dining room.
I also bought a smaller end table for one the chairs, but the end table there used to house all the picture albums, so I’m now going to keep them in the trunk.
I guess the bottom line here is that I’m not too rich any more. I just spent $1000 on a coffee table, end table and a small chair.
Oh, and today I decided that I needed a stainless steel slow cooker, so I bought that too. The good news is that my son will score the old slow cooker and chair. Bad news is I have no money left again, as usual. I’ll put up pictures when they arrive and we finally get stuff put away once more.
However, my big job is done. Now I’ll just wait for wedding pictures from the bride to put up on the jewellery site. I need another wedding to do.
