Hey there! Sorry about the unexpected absence! If you follow along on Instagram (homestylereport), you may remember me sharing a little tease of this chair last week! I'm really trying to get better about my timing and sharing things as they come along so here we go!
I'm a pretty regular Craigslist stalker and a find like this makes all of that hunting worth it. We were lucky enough to get this for one third it's original price and only a year old with very minimal use. Similar chairs I've been looking at typically cost 3-6 times what we paid for it so I'm considering this a pretty good deal! The best part of the deal has been how much Chris likes it. He's usually somewhat passive when it comes to the design in our house but he has commented multiple times on how much he likes our new friend.
With the new addition to our office I figured I should also work on hanging a few things. In the six years since I've graduated college this is the first time my diploma has been hung or displayed. I've always had this weird design issue when it comes to displaying diplomas. Sure I'm proud of it but I honestly never thought I would care for the look of them hanging on a wall. However, Chris has been wanting to get them up for awhile so I decided to throw in a couple of cheap-o letters that I painted black and see how I feel about it.
I'm actually surprised with how much I like having them displayed. This angle makes me dislike the fact that everything isn't centered but in real life I really like where they are. I'll probably live with them like this for awhile and then make up my mind, I'm lazy like that.
After we got the chair in the office we realized our white rug made everything look extremely washed out so that got pulled up. I've been wanting to replace it so that's just some extra motivation for me to find the right one.
How was everyone's weekend? I took Friday off and got my closet area painted and started work on our dining room paint job. Remind me never to use anchors in plaster walls again! I've been working on patching the holes left behind by them every day this weekend. I wasn't thinking it would be a quick paint job but so much. Hopefully I can get around to that today or tomorrow.
