Last weekend while at The Alameda Point, I mentioned that I brought a few things home with me.
A whimsical key
And then I came upon these chairs...
I didn't need them of course and would have passed them by if it weren't for my dear old mom who insisted they were meant for me.
It didn't help that I knew the man who was selling them. There was also this random girl who kept walking by asking if I was going to buy them. She kept coming back, finally asking if she could take a picture of them.
All of these forces culminated in my purchasing them.
The man I bought them from said he would deliver them on Thursday.
I immediately had buyers remorse, mainly because I didn't need them.
My mom thought they would make great side chairs in my dining room and I agreed.
Well yesterday they were delivered and I didn't like the way they looked in my dining room.
Seeing something in your mind and then actually seeing it in the room can be very different!
I felt that they were too heavy for my little dining room and upset the delicate balance of what was already working in the room.
Buyers remorse was at an all time high!
I began to drag them from room to room to see if they might work somewhere else in my house.
I replaced the existing black faux bamboo side chairs flanking the marquetry dresser with the clamshell chairs and I think I'm in love!
I wasn't looking for an upgrade and certainly didn't need one but sometimes things just work out.
So in terms of an upgrade, I'd love to know what you think.
Are the Clamshell Chairs better?
