The red chairs from IKEA arrived yesterday and I'm still deciding how I feel about them. I try to keep reminding myself that while I spent over $300 aquiring them, they actually cost $100 bucks a piece so what kind of quality did I expect? The red is a little brighter than I like but is doable. The fabric probably irritates me most. It's cotton, but a really rough cotton and I don't like the way it feels on my skin. I'm tempted to have it reupholstered or face my fears and learn to reupholster it myself. There's always the option of leaving it as is and living with furniture I hate, which is cheaper. Lots to think about, including why I can't seem to make good buying decisions.
