K and I had a free night last week due to the fact that choir is on hiatus until the fall. Yes, I sing in a choir. A church choir. And, no, I will not post a picture of our performance attire no matter how amusing K thinks that would be. (Let's just say that whoever said black is always slimming hasn't seen this outfit, and, no, the shapeless, shoulder-padded, spangled, red jacket/cape/poncho doesn't help.)
So what does a wild and crazy married couple *do* with an unexpected free evening? In this case, buy some used furniture from Craigslist (cheap!) and spend the next 2 hours scrubbing what appears to be 40+ years of cat hair off it. While watching Season 1 of the Smurfs. On DVD. From the library.
I'm not sure which part of that is more embarrassing, but...it cleaned up nice, didn't it?
You can see there's still a small stain one one of the arms, and I need to get the Goo-Gone out to take the stickers off the legs (they say "IBM" which is apparently where this chair came from). Also, the back legs need new feet, but, hey, it's vintage Saarinen. And besides, that's what Season 2 is for, isn't it?
