Met Monday -Family Room Chair

It is Met Monday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. You may also want to mosey on over to Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for some thrifty treasure finds.
My Met Monday is small in renovation, however it is greatly appreciated by my family.
I have been in need of a new family room chair for some time now and hadn't quite found what I was looking for until a few weeks ago, when I was at the Decor Store with a friend of mine. This warehouse type store is great for decorators, staging, and anyone who loves home decor.
I spotted this chair below and captured it on my camera. I thought it would work really well in my family room with my Rowe sofa that I purchased a couple of years ago and the main ingredient it have to have was comfort. This chair seem to fit the bill and the price was right.

After taking the photo home and discussing with my husband who just trusts my judgement I decided to purchase the chair.After taking the photo home and discussing with my husband who just trusts my judgement I decided to purchase the chair. I did not need the ottoman. This is the chair I was replacing. Now you know why I needed a new chair. This poor thing had seen better days even with the chair cover and pillows.
I also purchased that cute little floral arrangement on the side table for $8.00 at the same store.
Here is the new chair in its new home. Doesn't it look great! The family loves the comfort of it and I love the look of it. It was meant to be.
The chair coordinates with the sofa well and the rest of the family room. I did not have to change anything else. Some times you just have to wait for that perfect piece and it is definitely worth the wait.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit today. Don't forget to check out Between Naps on the Porch for many other exciting makeovers. You may also want to check out Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for Thrifty Treasures hunting. Have a great time exploring and Happy Monday.
