Hello Frugal Confessions Readers!
For those of you new to this series, check out the introduction here.
Here is my confession of the week:
We have a formal living room that for a awhile we had no idea what to do with (big yoga room??). Then our sister in law came up with an idea that we love: a library! Paul and I are very passionate about books, and it’s always been a dream of both of ours to have a beautifully stocked library.
Well, a library in our minds would not be complete without two gorgeous reading chairs…except that these reading chairs run like $700 each. The solution? Craigslist. This week we picked up two chairs from two different sellers, and we will purchase wingback chair slipcovers to make them match!!! I am soooo excited. The floral chair cost $25, and the golden chair cost $20. Hurrah! Slipcovers will probably run us $40 each. So, our total will come to around $125 for matching reading chairs after all is said and done. How great is that?
