It Is Indeed A Small World

(L.Duncan's Chairs)

The other day I received an email from L.Duncan
suggesting I hop on over to Home To Three Duncan Boys to see her latest post.

I couldn't help but
LAUGH OUT LOUD in disbelief
upon seeing her post!

The ugly slipper chairs I won at auction
(which subsequently received a long overdue beauty treatment)
...have twins.

Found for a steal at Goodwill,
I can wait to see what she does with hers!


  1. WOW!!! Thank you so much! I look at my chairs and only hope that they turn out as beautiful as yours. After all, they are going into my master bedroom that I plan to hire you to design!

  2. This is going to be fun to watch. It will be fun to see another before and after - It is a small world indeed...

  3. You're welcome!

    You know, yours actually look DECENT, compared to the fussy little floral number mine were dressed in when I found them.

    What condition are they in? Can they get a good cleaning and be ready to go? Or do you have a full redo in the works?


  4. Oooh, I can't wait to see how they turn out! Your chairs turned out awesome, so I bet her's will too!

  5. Love these chairs, I'd love to find out if they were triplets and score a pair for myself- Goodwill here I come!

  6. Hi Janell,

    I added new images of the chairs now that they are home! I did a few close ups so you can see their 1970's velvet/gold fabric in all its glory!!!

  7. I love what you did with your chairs! Have to say that I just saw your room on all the best and it is gorgeous! -carlee

  8. I love what you did with your chairs and I can't wait to see what she's going to do with hers. This is a small world indeed.

  9. I can't wait to see either! I absolutely love a good chair redo.

  10. How funny! Loved seeing both of them! So happy I found your blog. Can't wait to get lost in it! Enjoy your weekend!

  11. Janelle,

    I'm popping in on another note...I saw your bedroom on all the best...and you are in my top three. Loved it!!
    Great blog too. Best~sharon

  12. That is funny. I love the shape of those chairs!!!!

  13. * Hellllooooo, Janell!!! Long time no see/talk/write! (It's Linda ("Mom of a German Shorthair") here, from the good ol (?) RMS days!

    Just saw your name "somewhere" & rannnnn right over~~~ Enjoyed your writing (& of course, pics) soooo much that I've been back-reading for the LONGEST time now. (My poor Belle-girl, the dawg, is crossing her legs to go outside, and here I am just having the BEST TIME reading awaaaay!)~

    Anyhoo, I've marked you on my FAVES, and will see if I can get on your E-mail list so I know when you post something new~~~
