The Gospel

Ask and you shall receive that your joy may be full!

24 Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. (John 16:24, New King James Version)

Yesterday I posted my Finishing List for 2009 and one line item was to purchase two chairs for the living room.  This would be the THIRD set of chairs I have purchased, but I made a profit on the sale of the other sets, so I'm not feeling too bad about the whole fiasco.  Yes, buying and selling chairs is a fiasco, and I don't want to do it for a living!

Still, I'm not complaining because I made a profit each time, and I am now the owner of the chairs from this ad:              Two (2) Chairs...Must Sell...Make Offer - $40 (West Tulsa)

Here are the pictures at their house, and I'll take some in my house and post them in my next post...

I know they look a little like "what were you thinking" chairs, but really, THEY WORK WITH MY SOFA!  I've had the hardest time finding something tall enough, with the right tone of green to match this yellow/green Lane Westwood Stationary Sofa I purchased a while back. 

Now we have a nice little family of married furniture, all from Craigslist, and all for under $275 if you count the profit I made from the other chairs!  Amazing, isn't it?  I heart Craigslist!

All the woodwork in the living room will be changing to Espresso, I believe, so that's what I'll be on the lookout for next! ;-)
