"New" chair!

Have I mentioned before how much I love bargain shopping?!  A couple of weekends ago, my mom, sister-in-law, 2 aunts and a cousin came to stay with me for the weekend so that we could shop, shop, shop!  We spent a few hours Friday night at HomeGoods & a few other stores.  Saturday morning we got up early to hit up a neighborhood that had over 200 houses having garage sales, to which we managed to be at for nearly 6 hours!  Saturday evening we hit up a place called TurnStyle, which is a consignment store, where I found one of my favorite items for the weekend!  After that we proceeded to shop some more at the mall & made it home late that night :D  I found it to be a very successful weekend with lots of bargains & fun items for the house - all for quite cheap!

Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I've been looking for a chair or something to go in my living room in the big empty space under the flower picture.  Well, I found something!  This fun old green chair!

It's not a perfect match, but I think it works!  It was a great deal too, which makes it even better :D 

We also found the table next to it for free at one of the garage sales - can't beat that price! It needs some TLC, but that I can handle. I'm also going to do something different with the "Inspire" decoration, but not quite sure yet what that might be.........I'll come up with something when the time is right!
