I have four of these Windsor-backed light cherry chairs in my Paper Jungle. As you might expect, they came from an expensive dining room set that I purchased during Marriage #1.
When Marriage #2 (LAST!) came along, dear hubby noted that these aren't very comfortable -- the sides snug up against the hips of the not-so-slim, and there's no padding other than that which nature has provided.
When they were replaced, they made their way up to the Paper Jungle, where one is used all the time at my main craft station, and the others reside in front of the back-up station, the sewing station and (UGH!) here at the computer desk. This makes for a very unhappy butt, back and legs.
I've wanted to replace the main craft station one with a comfy chair that swivels so I can turn from table to table, drawer to drawer, without having the legs of the chair stick in the rug. And I'm in the seat so much, I needed padding!
But I didn't want to spend my CRAFTING SUPPLIES money on a rickety, spindly one that won't hold my Nature-Enriched Natural Padding (LOL) as I move about.
Thrift store to the rescue!! Look at this gem I found just yesterday:
Circa 1940 -- solid, heavy wood. Genuine leather that's pretty much intact. 3" super padding ... adjustable (up/down and back suppport). They just don't make 'em like this any more!
And one of the most fabulous parts -- other than the fact this would have wound up in a landfill (yay for recycling!) was the price. Check it out....
I'm sitting out this dance, on my new chair ... while you all out there can do the "Happy Butt" dance for me!
