Neat Seat


Happy Saturday, everyone!  I started my day out right with a quick (and super easy) DIY project–turning my outdoor hanging chair (that was sitting at the back of the patio collecting dust) into an indoor reading nook with plenty of pillows and blankets to wrap up in!

This all began in the early a.m. hours over a cup of coffee and some ebay searching.  I was actually looking for a big, vintage leather chair for Dylan to enjoy when I came across this:






When I realized that I had this exact chair (ok, ok, a "version" of it), I decided to drive straight to Lowes and get help puting my own together.  With a simple rectangular base, four tapered legs, and some electrical brackets, my chair became a reality, all for under $30 (ps, I got the chair from a neighbor who was going to throw it out...thanks Kristen!). 

I hope you have a wonderful day, and stay tuned: we are heading to the Brandon Food Truck Rally this afternoon and will report back soon on all the tasty treats we find!
