Out went the small table and chairs. Thankfully my sister Terra took them in.
Up went my old desktop computer desk that used to be my sister's when she was a kid.
The chair in Mica's room belonged to the desk that is now in Isaak's room. I hot glued felt on the bottom of the chair, so it wouldn't further scratch our wood floors. Isaak now has the chair.
Mica needed a new chair. The trouble was, that his desk has a narrow chair opening. We went to ShopKo to look at an office chair. They only had 1 chair, it was too wide. We went to our biggest furniture store, Nebraska Furniture Mart. They had a ton of office chairs, but only 2 would fit the space. Both were black, $55 and $75, and 1 was out of stock. I thought about Office Depot/OfficeMax, but so many have closed I was unsure of where they are even at. I called Big Lots, which was right down the street to see if they had office chairs without handles. I was noticing the added handles are what made them too wide for his desk. They had a chair on sale for $34.
We drove there, and picked up a black chair! The store clerk stopped us and said, "Do you know that they come in other colors?" We're like, "Nope!" They came in grey (out of stock), red (more of a coral color), and teal. Mica's like, "Yes! I want the teal one!"
Mica grabbed the chair box, and insisted on caring it throughout the store. It was pretty heavy for him.
Teal goes much better in his room. He has a bright orange locker in his room, and a teal drawer on his locker bed. Complimentary colors work well together.
We got home, and Mica wanted to put his chair together. I said, "I don't know...your birthday is on Wednesday. I thought you could wait to put it together." Of course I was joking. He helped Travis put it together right away.
What's something you were excited to get when you were younger?
