Yay for FREE!!!

Ever since the first time I went to my in-law's house, I have coveted my mother-in-law's chaise lounge that she had in her bed room. I wanted one sooo bad! I looked everywhere for one that was similar and inexpensive. I looked on Craig's List, Ebay, Goodwill, garage sales and used funiture stores. I never could find one that was similar that I could afford. But guess what? I have the best mother-in-law, EVER!! My father-in-law bought her a new chair and ottomon for her bedroom so she GAVE ME HER CHAISE!!!
She's like an oversized chair and I like that. Perfect for snuggling up with a good book.

Her upolstery is different and I like that.

She goes great with my living room.
And she was free! That's the best part, of course, 'cause I am all about free! The only problem is that my mother-in-law smokes so my little chaise stinks! I had her out on the patio for a couple of days to air out but then it started raining! She gets sprayed with Fabreeze everytime I walk by and this weekend we are going to give her a good shampooing. But until then, I will just sit on the sofa and admire her!!!

Any suggestions on how to get rid of the smoke smell?? Help!


  1. Miss!!!!!!!!! I soooooooo love your new chaise lounge. I had a chair an ottoman in almost that EXACT fabric for years in MY bedroom!!! And I have two of those EXACT pillows in my great room......from TJMaxx right??? I think we may be soul sisters....we've got a lot of the same stuff!!!

  2. Love it!!!! Free... you go girl! Try some fabreze...may work~

  3. She's lovely but maybe she just needs to be dusted with a box of baking soda, let stand alone for several hours or overnight (can the window be open?) and then vacuumed. It might do the trick.

  4. Oh Meesie--I love it. Very French Budoir!!!
    I think the baking soda idea sounds good--or even some carpet fresh in a well ventilated place then vacuum.


  5. Free is always fun! Great chair, sorry I do not have an answer for getting rid of the stinkies.
