Home Decor Obsession: orange chair

The other day I was walking through one of my hometown thrift stores when I found this beautiful, orange chair. I hesitated at first cause I really don't like buying used couches or chairs (my slipcover couches were a different story cause they can be taken off and washed). What can I say. I'm a nurse and can't stand germs. Who knows what has been on that chair. But it was $22 and I couldn't pass it up. Well, when my sweet hubby graciously brought it home (he actually likes it, although I'm sure he was rolling his eyes - - in a good way, of course - - cause he has an amazing wife that finds so many wonderful deals and saves him so much dinero at all of those awesome thrift stores. Really, I think that's what he was thinking.), my little girl jumped all over it. Instead of taking her off, I got out my camera and snapped a few pics. I was maybe going to re-upholster it (something I have yet to attempt) but then remembered we have orange accents in our master bedroom. It might look pretty stunning in there once I make my headboard (someday) and once we don't have sheets covering our sliding glass door (yes - - we've lived here for almost 6 months and still have a sheet up).

It might also be nice as a photography prop. Look how adorable she is on it!


  1. Yes yes yes! Keep it orange! That's exactly what I was thinking when I saw your other post about it yesterday. :)

  2. I agree. I LOVE the orange! It's AWESOME! Isn't there some way to clean it really well?? Baking soda?? Vinegar and water??? There's got to be a tutorial somewhere.

  3. I don't think the fabric is too bad at all...Lysol? :)
    She is a cutie!

  4. Oh my, that *is* a great chair and what an adorable little girl on top of it!
    I work in a doctor office, and understand the ick factor but whatever could have been lurking...theres a pill for that! It couldnt be any worse than what comes home on the scrubs...right?...

  5. Awesome shade of ORANGE...just give her a good bath:) Hop over and show her off at my NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS PARTY.


  6. love the chair!!! great deal and great color.
