So I’ll be honest with you right now. I’ve pretty much given up on shopping in “real life”. You know what I mean, like actually going to the mall or some other store and wandering around until I find what I’m looking for. It’s not exactly my favorite thing to do, because I usually have all of my little munchkins in tow, which means I’m getting pulled in three directions at any given time. Someone is typically upset about something, needing to go to the bathroom, or begging for some random toy they spotted. It’s controlled chaos really. SO that means I pretty much do the vast majority of our shopping online. (I even order our groceries online!) It’s just so much easier, I’m not rushed AND I get to do it from my couch, which is the best part. Well a couple of weeks ago I was doing a little online shopping for some new chairs for our front room. I wanted to find something to balance that space a bit because it felt lopsided with our settee and the big oversized chair. Anyway, I found a set of gorgeous armchairs on eBay that I fell in love with. They just arrived and I am so excited to share them with you guys today!
Aren’t they so darn pretty?! I wanted something simple, yet classic and I thought these were the perfect fit. (You can see them HERE.) These are a great size for this space and they really do balance out the room like I wanted. Plus they’re really affordable, which is always a good thing when you’re on a budget. I found them in the Overstock store on eBay and they came in a set of three–I got the two chairs and the matching side table in a package deal.
I’ve probably said it a few 100 times now, but this room is my favorite to style and decorate. It’s full of some of my favorite antiques, like the old card catalog and that black vintage door in the corner. And I’ve been working in here a lot lately, so it really is the closest thing I have to an office. Plus it’s usually always bright and sunny, which of course makes me happy. I LOVE this room.
I’ll be honest, it wasn’t until a few months ago that I realized how HUGE eBay is. Apparently there are over 1 billion listings available at any give time. ONE BILLION. Can you believe that? It’s mind blowing. And over 80% of the items are brand new and available with the “buy it now” option, which is pretty cool because there’s no hassle with bidding for something you want. You can literally find just about anything your little heart desires and there’s even a daily deals page, which is loaded up with tons of awesome stuff at majorly discounted prices. Plus most of it ships free and we all know that free shipping is the best thing in the entire world. Well other than donuts, but that’s another story.
Well I hope you enjoyed this little look at our updated front room and I’d love to hear what you think of my new chairs. Thank you soooooo much for dropping in today and spending time with me here on the blog, you know how much I truly appreciate it! xo
