We rented a uhaul truck and the people at the store helped my husband load it. It wasn't until we arrived home that we realized that there might be a problem. It weighed a thousand pounds if it weighed 1 lb. Just getting it out of the truck...well lets back up...just carrying the chairs inside was a monumental job! The table top without the pedestal required incline planes and a hand truck and ingenuity. It would have been handy to own a fork lift or even a pulley but we don't have those.
To make a long story short, we did finally get it in the house, reassembled and turned over. We put it in the spot we had decided to put it and added the chairs. That was when it soaked in on us that we were the proud owners of 4 side chairs, one arm chair and a one armed chair.
I had picked up a beautiful crocheted table cloth at an estate sale and it covered the top but that chair just sat there being one armed.
Company is coming and I moved that chair out into the living room. I just love it so much. There is something about it that makes me giggle. A funny, fantastic fabulous fancy choice chair. Come on over and visit sometime. I will even let you sit in it...you will be envious I know.
So, what have you bought lately? I hope it makes you smile!
