Hellllllllo again. I know I've been an erratic blogger as of late. I was away working a crazy freelance job and then I had to recover from said crazy freelance job and now I'm back to normalish. Well, as normal as I ever get. But, life is good. Summer is here! (it has already been in the 90's) and I enjoyed a particularly boozy and Braves game filled Memorial Day weekend. As it should be. My wallet found it's way back to me and I think I'm going to buy a bike soon. Brooklyn is treating me well and I'm slowly pulling my apartment together. I did procure a lovely dining table from Ikea a month ago and assembled it with the help of my very talented and determined Mom. I had my eye on a beaut of a table from Restoration Hardware (actually the same one I gave to my sister and bro-in-law for their wedding) BUT ultimately I decided not to spend a lot on a table. I happen to have space for a big table now but who knows if that will always be true and I'd hate to be stuck with a big, beautiful table but nowhere to put it. So, a cheapy but perfectly lovely Ikea table won out this time. However, that leaves the very daunting/exciting task of chairs. I have always loved the idea of mismatched chairs (so much so I even started a dorky pinterest board of them). So after several weeks of careful, considered reflection I was leaning towards getting chairs in the same color but in a variety of styles. At first, I thought I wanted yellow. I even prepared a post about looking for yellow chairs.
But then I remembered that sometimes I get a little too excited when it comes to color and that maybe the yellows would be hard to match. So, then I decided a mix of all white chairs would be really excellent. Simple and clean but still interesting. In fact, I got really into that idea and prepared yet another post.
I was convinced that it made some sense to really invest in chairs. After all, I'll always need a place to sit, right? But, as usual, I got nervous and I balked at spending too much (um- chairs are expensive in case you were wondering). So I lost my nerve and I got a bunch of these instead. Yes, they are in fact folding lawn chairs intended for outside use. And call me crazy, but that's exactly why I love them.
So hooray! I have new chairs! Won't you come on over and take a load off? I'll save you a seat.
p.s. Please forgive the sparse styling in this photo. Actually just be happy the entire surface of this table isn't covered in all of my random shit.
