dream chair destiny.

i promise this will be the last time i talk about our palm springs trip, but i'm still reeling from the new little treasure we now have sitting in our bedroom [see photos!]. i knew the thrifting at palm springs was pretty good, but i had no idea i'd be coming home with this beautiful mustard yellow velvety chair [in perfect condition] for only $25! it is seriously cute as can be and freakishly comfortable, and i'm convinced it was destiny that led me to this beauty.

the only challenge was to fit it in our tiny car, and after a few tries we realized the painfully obvious--that the shape of the car door was [kind of] the perfect shape to fit the chair in upside down! but like i said......destiny. :)

  6. my favorite chair in my house was destiny too. i was driving by the antique store, saw them unloading it from far away, and turned around. when i pulled up to admire the chair the guy unloading it told me the whole story about the lady whose home it came from... and then he said he'd give it to me for $25.

    hooray for dream chair destinies. i LOVE yours!
