It all starts with a great find and a little time. For me it was really no time at all. I was on my way home, car full of boys and saw a garage sale. So I stopped. Saw these cute pillows and for really cheap I bought them. Then weeks later another garage sale. One look at that Posies Dot print and I knew I was in for a steal of deal. First, I had already collected a few other items here and there. And if the price is right on this chair, this would only add to the story I was already building one piece at a time and one great find at a time.
This Posie Dot was on a very familiar chair. A chair I had custom made for a client over ten years ago. A designer knows her work and this was my work. After ten years it was in a garage sale. I might have thought “ouch” to my ego, but finds like this demand oo’s and ah’s. The gal said it was a dear friend’s who had it “custom made” as reading chair in her little girl’s room. But her daughter was a teenager now and passed it onto her. She was moving and had no room to take it. So for less than $20.00 it was loaded into my van. I did not even have to load it. And the sweetness of this was made even sweeter knowing it was going with a story I was building.
The story is this. I found these cute floral, solid, and check pillows in a garage sale too as mentioned above. Kept them tucked away for future story building. Then I got my hands on this colorful braided rug that matched these pillows growing my story. To find a chair, now building this colorful story you can imagine how excited I was. Take a look at the next picture. WALLA!!! The story continues to grow. Who’s story is this anyway?
Each week, most likely on a Friday I will be featuring the next “One Great Find at a Time”. I love to focus on kids’ rooms as that is where my heart and passions started, but keep checking in as I find other great finds for every room in the house.
