It’s been months…MONTHS…since I began my search for dining chairs for my little breakfast area…
I have looked, and looked, and looked…and still nothing. How hard can it be?! All I need are two matching dining chairs!! Aarrgghhhh!!! I’ve looked repeatedly at Salvation Army, Goodwill (three locations!), and I search Craigslist regularly (sometimes twice a day).
But it seems like the only chairs that are ever sold on Craigslist in my area are these…
…or this very similar variation…
and even then, I’d have to buy the table, too. What is it with these chairs?! Why does it seem that at least 80% of the population owns these chairs??!!
All I need are two…matching…chairs. I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for. I just know it’s not anything like the ones above. *sigh*
If you live in the Waco area and have two nice dining chairs that look NOTHING like the ones above, and you’d like to get them off your hands at a reasonable price, help a girl out…please!!
In other news, in the short time since I frosted the window in J & A’s master bathroom last week with frosted window film, I’ve decided that I really, really, REALLY love the stuff!! This weekend, I did my bedroom window.
You see, my bedroom window looks directly out to a parking lot. Not pretty. Not pretty at all.
Not only is the view less than desirable, but I always have to be conscious of that window when walking around…ummm…less than fully clothed. It’s been quite a headache.
But I’m not sure what’s worse…the fact that our “view” is a parking lot, or the fact that the view is clouded by a layer of condensation trapped between the panes of glass.
Well, now I’ve taken care of both problems! I no longer have a privacy issue. In fact, I can leave my shade wide open…at night…with my bedroom light on…and skip around in my birthday suit…and nobody can see in. It’s GREAT!! (Was that T.M.I.? Sorry!) And the appearance of that ugly condensation has all but disappeared. Oh sure, if you look closely, you can still see it. But it’s no longer “in your face” obvious.
And I absolutely love the fact that it doesn’t cut down on the sunlight. Oh, and I also think it’s fun to install. (Yes, I understand that my idea of “fun” is a bit strange.) 🙂
