New Chair!

New Chair!

Omg I could NOT wait to share this with you! It was delivered just an hour ago, and I cannot tell you how happy I am. Being 21, I've never bought any furniture that didn't come with one of those little metal wrench thingies to put it together with. But last week I made my first big purchase, I see it as an investment. I got this GORGEOUS white leather club chair from Padmas Plantations on amazon... now what made me get it was it was part of a 48 hour sale... it was only $270 with no tax, and free shipping... original price: $850!! It is so well-made and really comfy, and I can definitely see myself curling up in it with a book or a cup of hot tea in the mornings. It was a pain in the butt to get through my door (I had to take it out of its giganto box in the hallway, and it barely squoze through the doorframe!) but it was worth it. Without further ado, my first adult furniture purchase!

An overview of how it fits in the corner of my room (on the left is my bed, on the right is the entrance to the master bathroom).

A close-up of the left arm... I love the stitching!

And here's a picture of it from amazon.com... it looks less shine-tastic in person.
