It seems like alot of money, even starting with a friend who started upholstery business and waiting for cloth on sale, then waiting for chair to be finished. If you care very well for the chair, and keep it the rest of your life, then it is a Bargain. Lots of time, lots of cash, patience, and good care. Still a bargain. sincerely, mary

I always enjoy reading comments. These people will probably rearrange their rooms many times, as most of us do. They really love their home, and I am sure I would be a little disturbed, a little, if people criticized my home arrangements. We wouldn't want to go into their homes and counsel. We have the freedom and power to dress or undress our home, and oh it feels so good to do that!!! sincerely, mary
