Hello and Happy Saturday! We have had a busy week of painting (our family room wall unit) and planking (a wall in our family room). We are right in the middle of the planking so that is what is on the agenda during our free time this weekend. We also took a trip to Ikea for a few small items and ended up coming home with a chair! The new Stocksund chair to be exact.
It wasn't a total impulse purchase because I have had my eye out for a more comfortable chair to replace the Ikea Jennylund chair that used to be here. I love what the old chair looked like but it was uncomfortable to sit in for more than a few minutes. This new chair is roomy (almost chair and a half size) and comfy. I was able to choose which color legs I preferred and I went with the lighter birch color (the other choice was black). I may end up painting the legs but I haven't decided yet. My youngest fell asleep in it the first night proving it is perfect for us.
It is slipcovered in a great fabric that appears linen-ish but it is machine washable, which is a must for us in this house. They also had a lighter gray and a darker gray option. That is why I love buying at Ikea. When you enjoy changing things as often as I do, their slipcovers allow for that for not too much $$.
And the gray check Jennylund still has a place in the room. Now we have a cozy seating area all around our hacked Hemnes coffee table.
Also, today I am being featured over at Junk Chic Cottage. I was so honored when the lovely Kris asked me to be a part of her series, Saturday Spotlight. I have learned so much more about some of my favorite bloggers there! Please stop over and check it out if you have time and want to learn a bit more about me and my life behind this blog :) I would really appreciate it!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
