Angell Room Gets New Chairs

August 13th, 2012 by Innkeeper

For years I’ve been looking for new chairs for the Angell Room.  Not too big.  Just the right color.  Comfy.  Matching.  And the list goes on…  But, I’ve never been able to find the ones I want.  I have two chairs and beautiful, expensive fabric that I purchased a while back sitting in my office.  The plan has always been to have new slip covers made.  But, I can’t find anyone to sew them.  So, I thought I would take on the task myself.  How hard could it be, right?  I plow the driveway in the winter, clean out the gutters, re-screen windows, do minor repairs, sew curtains and draperies for the canopy beds…  I can surely sew slipcovers.  Then, just when I’m not looking, I find the perfect chairs.  Yeah, I’ve heard that one before.

New chairs, blinds and curtains too!
