Yeah! It's done. The Flash Furniture Mid-Back Mesh Swivel Task Office Chair (that's a mouthful!) chair from Staples arrived yesterday: three days early. So I got to work. I put the big parts on the sewing room floor to begin the process. The wrapped chair legs look like a blue starfish against the arms and seat back.
The other parts laid out on the floor....
Next the parts list to figure out what was what.
I like to lay them all out, counted, to get familiar with each type.
I sorted the screws and other parts and put them next to my machine on my sewing machine mat. By the way, this Sewing Machine Necessary mat pattern is available on my website. I had to measure the screws to figure out what was which in the millimeter sizes.
It didn't take long to put it together with the provided hex wrench. The cool mesh back will be nice during the summer. The seat is oh so comfortable!! And I can swivel around, twirl and generally be much more efficient when sewing. So here's the final, wonderful result of re-designing my sewing room for a more efficient, functional work space.
The total amount was about $445.00 for the desk, drawer unit and chair (including a $20 coupon at Staples). Not a bad investment at all! The room is much lighter and brighter
and a wonderful haven to sew in.
