Weekend Project: Cloffice Chair

Ever since I moved my office into the closet of our guest room, my desk chair has been irritating me.  Because it is big with arms and casters on the bottom, it would not fit up under my desk, so I could not close it up in the closet when it wasn’t in use.  That meant that I had to roll it around the bed to get the closet doors closed, then roll it in the corner, where it was definately out of place.  Then I had to repeat the process in reverse when ready to use my ‘office’ again.

So Bradley took me to Ikea on Friday to look for a cheap alternative.  I love the chair I ended up with!  It is the Snille design in blue-green (because that color was on sale:)  The legs wrap under the chair so it is super easy to slide back and forth under my desk.  The molded plastic seat is surprisingly comfortable too.

At only $14.98, I think it was a great deal.  Now, I just need to sell my old desk chair and I figure I can get more than $15 for it!

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
