Ta da.... new desk chair.

Remember, the putting the new desk together debarcle?

Remember, I may have mentioned needing  wanting a new desk chair?


Well, Mr M cobbled one together using some old chair parts and making some parts himself. I cobbled together a seat using the same material as the pinboard and ta da....... a new chair, very comfy that blends with the chair and the pinboard. (note to self, do not eat chocolate on pale seat).



I am loving the new chair and decided it needed it's own little photo shoot.

So did my neighbours cat Blossom.

She thought she would just take over the whole show!

Move over Buffy the Vampire Slayer, there's a new puss in blogtown!
Dear Buffy belongs to The Tranquil Townhouse, you can see more of her here.

  2. It looks FANTASTIC! I love the way the pin board matches the chair. And Blossom is very cute, good to see she's got an eye for good taste :)
    Hope you're having a great weekend.

  6. I am loving that chair to bits, even with Blossom on it, who I would have to say looks every bit as sassy as the Vampire Slayer! Although a whole lot more energetic! Thanks so much for the mention of Buffy's (I mean my) blog!! Can I trade you Buffy for that chair, she'd be no trouble I promise :)

  7. Beautiful chair and a great photo it!!!

  8. Oh that is a pretty chair. When I saw your title, I thought you were putting together an Ikea chair or something.

  9. Theres something to be said about having to be thrifty and inventive when it comes to furniture.
    I have so many things that need painting. Ill probably do them ALL on the same day in a mad rush before my inlaws visit from overseas or something! Not like your much more pragmatic approach. If only *sighs....
