The Transmogrification of a Smorgasbord

19990314You see, I bought a chair. I don’t really know why. I just spotted this chair in a sort of antique shop/flea market kind of spot, and liked it. It turned out to be Swedish, made of oak, and had been crafted in 1880. Who knew? I still have it, although the seat needs repair, and it’s currently stuck in a corner of our bedroom with some boxes piled on it. One of these days. But hey, a Swedish chair… perhaps the first of many new chairs (not, as it turned out). We went, semi-Swede.
