Welcome to Met Monday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. It is always fun to see everyone's transformations. At Linderhof, alas, transformations are far and few between for we've been here for 21 years and there isn't much to transform.
However . . . . I did have a corner of the master bedroom that I was unhappy with. A cabinet held my Royal Doultons and there is a plant in the window but it lacked . . .
And then Friday at a consignment furniture store in the city, I found a chair with a wee footstool.
I must tell you that I have three fetishes -- chairs, lamps and pictures. Like orphans, I'm always dragging a lone chair, another lamp or a picture that I think will be perfect -- someplace.
I have been trying to be good about my fetishes and I haven't brought home any new chairs or pictures in forever. Although I've not been real good about lamps -- but we all can't be perfect!
So trying to be good, I passed on the chair.
And the more I thought about it, the more perfect I thought it would be for the bland corner in the master bedroom.
And so this morning at breakfast, I played my "mother's day" trump card and off to the city we went -- to get that chair!
In place, it is PERFECT!!!! It's has age (although I don't know how much), it's upholstered in needlepoint which is in good condition. The tag said it was French but upon loading it, the bottom says "made in Belgium".
In case you didn't notice, Oliver, the Corgi decided to be "Vanna White" and pose with the chair.
But perhaps a dog should be modest after all -- if I don't look at you, you won't know I'm there!
I think the chair looks far better than even I thought it would. It's a great piece and I do love it -- and I think it just makes that corner!
