This is a photo chronology of the demo and remodeling.

5th purchase for the house

Gloria and I went to Second Chance in B'more to look for anything that would go in the house: sitting chairs, couches, sideboards to turn into vanities, dining chairs, lighting, etc.

Our first go around the warehouses netted a nice green velvet couch, for a steal. It needed a little cosmetic help, but that's it. Since we had 3 other places to go, I decided to leave it and come back for it. 120 minutes later, we return to find a red tag on it. It was sold.

Dejected, I moped around the store, looking for something to buy to lift my spirits (I have a problem with that). Gloria spotted this perfectly sized, newly reupholstered sitting chair. This chair is the exact style I was looking for: wood arms, lightly upholstered, good details.


I love the double piping and the colorful plaid. It definitely isn't the pattern I expected to find, but I think it will do wonderfully in the house.

  1. So satisfying to find a bargain you love! Just don't wear a plaid shirt when you're sitting in the chair or you'll disappear.
