Day 15: My old (and uncomfortable) desk chair

What I purged

Last weekend, I was at Goodwill when I found -- quite unexpectedly -- a great vintage chair to go with my desk.  I've been through several chairs over the years, and have found most to be uncomfortable.  I haven't been happy with this chair, pictured above, for some time, so when I saw the new one I jumped on it (not literally).

My old chair is really cute -- someone hand painted the embossed flowers across the top of it, but it's pretty and I've always liked it.  It just isn't a good chair to sit in for any length of time, and I don't feel like storing anything that I don't genuinely love and want to keep.  Plus, I have too many damn chairs as it is.

What I'll do with it

This is another furniture item that I've listed on Craigslist.  No bites yet, but I just listed it a week ago, so I'm still hopeful.

Final notes

I worry a lot about having second thoughts about getting rid of things, especially things that aren't replaceable, as with something unique like this chair.  But I also know that I don't like sitting in it, so I'm trying my best to ignore my fears.  I can't keep it all with that reasoning as justification.
