Skating on some kind of post house offer delirium, Mr F & I walked out of IKEA's "As Is" room amidst the blaring loudspeaker announcing closing, and checked out with these....
The 60s element of our potential new home obviously got to our heads because:
they are non-returnable
they are, in non-Ikea surroundings, clearly ugly
they are also filthy and slightly damaged
Sure they were 50% off... but people... they were still $300! What the?!
Upon seeing them in the garage, an hours worth of regret had set in and I said...
"This was a big mistake!"
"We got caught up in the moment." Mr F responds softly.
"We?!! You are the one who wanted them! You better LOVE them!" I say somewhat hysterical.
A half hour later...
"You know, it really kills me, because it's the exact opposite of what I'm trying to achieve." I say to Mr F.
"I wanted playful and fun.... not.... hideous."
