The post title totally gives me away, but I'm going to tell you a little story anyways.
Once upon a time...
just kidding, that is how my little Elle starts ALL her stories.
On with it.
I had an out of body experience the other day...
My husband and I were walking up to +Cost Plus World Market in search of a shower curtain when we saw the holy grail of the clearance world...
a 75% OFF sign for all Outdoor Furniture.
And it was sitting on a metal chair.
There were 5 chairs in all...
2 red (orange?), 1 blue (black?) and 2 yellow.
I was almost excited, except with only being 5 chairs I was holding back.
So inside we headed. I wanted to head straight for the outdoor section in pursuit of the 6th chair, but we got side tracked by our original purpose- shower curtain.
Then Miss Elle had to use the potty...
then we got distracted by baskets, and rugs and pillows... you get the idea.
I started to get anxious because I knew someone else would want MY chairs
FINALLY we made it to the outdoor section.
There weren't any more chairs.
I started freaking out as we headed to checkout.
My husband thought we should just get the five, I wasn't sure.
So, I headed back to the front of the store to double check that I wanted the chairs.
and what do you know...
there were 6!!
So even tho we were only after a shower curtain, we came home with these...
for just about $150.
Only I'm in a conundrum now. How to unify them?
We banished our old chairs to the garage (still untouched from the day I bought them, I might add...) and brought these in around my newly painted table. I had just painted it a week prior to finding chairs, because it was gross from my kids and a I failed to seal it the first time I painted it.
Here's what my table looked like at the beginning of the year...
Now, I'm living with the hot mess of color, but only until we can decide on a color to paint the chairs.
(hey look! I didn't even bother to clear away my coffee mug or boosters...or edit my crummy iPhone shot for you.... #reallife )
Here are a few ideas:
