Needlepoint chair

I've been on the lookout for a little chair to compliment the desk next to our bed. While out thrifting one day, I ran across this cute, needlepoint chair for $17 and knew it'd do the trick.
I had every intention of recovering it with a more modern fabric but once I got it home it became very obvious that it was perfect as is. Score! I'm all about less work. (side note, doesn't everyone keep a spittoon next to their bed? You didn't know I had a nasty habit, did you?! ;) 

The golden tones tied right in with the chair across the room. Love it when things work out by happy accident!

Here you can get a better feel for the vintage details...floral needlepoint and wonderful brass capped feet.
I'm also really enjoying the faux sheepskin rug from Ikea. It's softness greets me every morning when my feet first touch the ground. Nothing like starting your day with a soft, little hug from the floor! Think I'm strange?...give it a try before you judge, you'll thank me for it.

What a find, someone was awfully talented, the needlepoint is beautiful! Your spittoon reminded me when I was a flight attendant, Ted Turner was on my flight and handed me his cup that he'd used as a spittoon! Of course, I smiled and said, 'thank you!'

Your spittoon isn't nearly as romantic as a chamber pot, but I suppose it will do ;)

Love the chair! And I have the same Ikea faux skin in my room, but it's draped on a chair. I shutter to think what kind of things that would be tracked on it (peed on it, spilled on it) if it were on the floor. I am horrible at keeping kids/animals out of there. Looks SOOOO lovely though...

How sweet is that chair? I love the needlework on it and vintage feel of the chair with the fuzzy sheepskin rug!
