What's in the Box?
Exciting day, today! I took delivery of two new chairs for the studio. Well, at least, I got two boxes with chairs in them.
Empire Furniture are having a sale on these chairs at the moment and they match the chairs I already have in my studio..... YAAAAY! On top of that they are taking an extra $50 off each chair for their existing customers..... Woohoo! What more could I ask for?!!
When I picked them up, the kind gentleman asked me if I'd like them put together for $30 each. When I asked him how long it takes, he said about 2 minutes.
Umm, I'm no maths genius, but that works out to $15/minute. I don't think so. I'm a dab hand when it comes to assembling Ikea furniture so I'm sure I can tackle these and I'll keep the $60 thanks!
So tackle them I did!
The first one took about 10 minutes because I got to this point and didn't understand the next instruction.
But the second one took only a couple of minutes as promised!
And I'm christening one of them as I write this! It feels SOOOOO good.....
Come Saturday morning, I won't be scavenging every spare chair in the house for my resin workshop. Lucky students.... brand new, ergonomic chairs.
Next chair I want is a stool on wheels to scoot around the studio. I'm eyeing off the one my hairdresser uses in her home salon - I think she'll have to keep a close eye on it!
'Til next time.....
