Up Chairs

My husband’s $20 chair and my $12 slipcovered chair.  At first they annoyed me when they were near each other.  And even though I just pushed them together for this photo, I love that you can see a little bit of our personalities in our chairs.  I needed to be reminded to embrace the differences.

  1. How adorable. That movie is the best

  2. I love the post. I am so glad my husband’s chair doesn’t look like mine! It would make for a boring marriage – I can only handle one chair with perfectly karate-chopped pillows (mine!) – if he started karate-chopping his pillows, i would be concerned! (of course i do it for him…) haha. Really, thanks for the reminder. AND thanks for all of your inspiration. Your blog was like the first “home blog” I ever found on-line like 1 1/2 years ago – it has been a huge blessing to me! I remember nailing window treatments to the wall and thinking….it’s ok! Much thanks!

  3. I have tears in my eyes….so sweet!


  4. yupper doosies. embrace them. embrace him. you can grow old together in those chairs. sometimes chairs aren’t compatible, but when the heartprints are on them, it’s true magic. may the Lord bless you …

  5. i can hear the carl & ellie music now…

  6. If peple were chairs I could almost see your personalities. How fun. I love chairs and lamps, there is such character in both.
    A good lesson for people as well as furniture.

  7. Precious! Loved Up and love your chairs!

  8. Love this post! Loved the movie UP & I love your chairs, too!!

  9. It is so funny how much they look like the Up chairs. I love that movie..

  10. I love (ABSOLUTELY LOVE) the “Up” chairs. That was the sweetest movie, and I never, ever thought about the chairs not matching or being tacky. I just loved they were set so close together. Very neat concept

  11. super cute :)

  12. Don’t you just love something beeyootiful that somebody else didnt think was “good enough”? I think they must be nuts,imnsho. :D and tho I am sorry you were initially annoyed, I like them together. Different yes, annoying no. But i’m weird that way. ;) glad you’re “embracing the differences”-how boring life would be without them! -s-

  13. This is too funny. In our living room is this hideous baby blue Lazy Boy recliner. It’s what I refer to as my husband’s “Archie Bunker Chair”. We bought the chair at a garage sale for a $1 when we moved out here to no-man’s land and had his aunt recover it. She decided that the blue would pick up a blue we had in the couch…. a couch that has been passed down to our oldest when he moved out and then he passed it on to his younger brother when he needed a couch. So it matches NOTHING. But it’s his chair. He claims it’s the perfect baby-rocking, book-reading chair every made. Whatever. I bet we still have it when we move into the old folks home.

  14. What a great perspective! I love the movie Up. That’s just a great reminder that it’s not important *what* is in your home as much as *who* is in it. That’s what makes a house a home. Great blog!

  15. I’d love to have a pair of “Up” chairs. I love it as a decorating idea. I actually think it brings a lot of personality to the room.

  17. so adorable! I can’t believe how they look just like the “Up” chairs! …..and great point about differences. I have learned to love my husband’s ugly recliner too :) lol

  18. Thanks for reminding me that we are all different and that we just really meet in the middle no matter how different we are. It’s funny how you noticed it in the movie! Great pick up!
