I have been looking on Gumtree for the past couple of months for an armchair to go in the vacant corner of our office/library. The space was created when we decided that we only needed one bookshelf rather than two. You can read about the previous steps of the revamping of this room here.
This morning I found a listing on Gumtree for 2 chairs which were to be sold as a pair. Although I really only wanted a single chair, we decided to take a look as it was not too far from home.
We bought the two chairs and by moving the bookcase slightly we can actually fit them both in.
They are solid timber and are over 70 years old. The current upholstery is in excellent condition and works perfectly in this room. It is great to be able to find quality furniture and give it a new home.
In preparation for more furniture re-arranging tomorrow I have sold this small chest of drawers.
They are nothing special, I bought them from Gumtree a few years ago when they were bare chipboard and painted gloss white. I have used them for storing material and craft supplies in my sewing room but now it is time to move them along. They will be collected tomorrow morning.
Come back tomorrow to see the newly re-vamped TV cabinet and more changes to the location and use of our existing TV stand.
Love the reading nook
Thank you. A quiet corner to sit and read has always been a dream of mine. Now it is a reality. 🙂
