Old Waiting Room Chairs

They’ve been in the living room for a while now, but I don’t think they’ll be staying. I’ve had those chairs for years though (you’ve probably seen them pop up in other areas of my house too), so I thought I’d give them a try.

Old Waiting Room Chairs

I might not bother with making a slipcover for our ugly old bench either. I still like having our Eames LCW there, which is the way I set up the room in the very beginning.

I do like the new (old) end tables I picked up though. The size is much better, and I love the little drawer (to store our bajillion remotes and video game controls). I just wish they were in better shape.

    I’d be happy to sit and wait in those chairs with a really good magazine.

    Oh those chairs are cute, as well as the end table. But I *love* that little round table that’s between the chairs! Adorable!

    Are those Danish Modern end tables? I swear I think they are the exact same tables that my parents had when they first got married in the early 60’s!

    I love the throw pillow on the sofa! The colors in the pillow really make the room pop. The lamp is pretty nice also…
