In Which Pride Is Oozing From My Fingertips

Ok ok ok so just as I was about to feel lazy about The Chair, I found THIS:

IT'S MY CHAIR!!  Only it's someone else's.  But it's the same.  I found it reading this article on Apartment Therapy.  

So basically my gleeful pride is oozing from my fingertips because of two things:

1.  My chair is famous.  You know, since it's on craigslist and all and was in some way featured on Apartment Therapy.  Famous, I tell you!

2.  The writer of this article not only liked, but purchased "my" chair for $195 a pair! 
(But after further consideration, it doesn't actually say that they purchased them...  regardless, I know they wanted to) (How could they not?) 

Okay so to put it in perspective for you, this is much like the feeling of pride you have when someone tells you that your boyfriend/husband/lover-person is hot.  It's like a virtual pat on the back and a "good choice!" from a fellow lover of nice things.  You follow?  Only my chair is a family heirloom of sorts and I have stood by him while many thought him to be ugly and dated.  Let this be a lesson to you all: stand by your chair... er, man.

Stand by your [chair]
Give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to
When nights are cold and lonely

Well said, Tammy.  Well said.

Did it lose it's "antique/classic/retro" status when you painted the frame and reupolstered the seat? Not meaning to be a kill joy. Just wondering. I think you've done a great job with your chair. And who knew it was so precious?
