A Desk Chair



This is our office chair. I love this chair. It evokes the fondest memories of the day I happened across it. It was a crisp fall day and I was driving through the little town of Dixfield, Maine. As I was driving through, I came across an old abandoned church operating as an antique store.

I stopped to look around and found this chair. It reminded me of a musical instrument with its wooden curves and bow-like spindle back.

What it is: beautiful solid oak desk chair
Where I got it: a church turned antique store in a small town
What I paid: $125.

I am from Maine, and whenever we return to visit family and friends it always seems like we discover a new-to-us antique or thrift shop. Such a different feeling from the big Goodwills and Salvation Army thrift stores. My entire wardrobe in high school was picked from the Fryeburg Thrift Shop - also in an old small church. I love seeing all of the treasures you've carried with you - Maine really is a special treasure trove!

I just happened to discover your blog today. I am currently going through the same process of doing a complete renovation of an 1860's farm house.

I started from the beginning on here to get the whole story.

The photos of your home are inspiring. The fact I just came across the word "Dixfield" I may have squealed with Joy. I am from a neighboring town and glad you found a beautiful treasure from your travels there.

Love your style, love your home,love your blog. Keep it up!

Cheers!
