    Oh wow, I am so selfish! I just bought myself a new chair for my sewing room. I don't think it is really an office chair. but it has wheels and is so comfy! Problem is, my DH is in desperate need for a chair for his home office. I know I should give it to him but I want it!!! I found it at the Salvation Army for $15. When they rang it up it was only $11.25!! I'll have to post a pic after I get it hauled into the house.

    The biggest problem is it is heavy and I'm having troubles getting up the steps and downstairs by myself. If I wait for DH to come home he will give me grief and want it for himself. If I do it myself he will probably never know I bought it. What to do......

    I also went to WM and bought one of those vinyl carpet runners for using on stairs and such. Thought I could cut it into strips and put on the carpet under my sewing chair and that way it will roll around better....I'm hoping anyway.

    Guess I'll try one more time to move that chair in. Cross your fingers. If you don't hear back from me I'm pinned under a chair on the stairs in the garage! :lol: :lol:

    Be careful!!!! :shock:

    When I bring a chair upstairs, I hold it behind me and lean forward while going up the stairs. Sort of like if I was sitting in the chair holding onto the handles.

    Sounds like you need to go up some steps to get inside, then your room might be downstairs. I don't know how you're going to get it downstairs. Be careful!

    Find a neighbor! And tell hubby he gets the next one! LOL Once my late DH found the office chair we had to find one for him --I ended up with additions to my stash because the GoodWill stores always had something that would go with my stash! We hit everyone of them between Seattle and Lincoln City, Oregon one vacation trip. Made so many good memories that we took out and shared with each other.

    :lol:

    Well...that was a total waste of time and effort! I finally got the chair downstairs. Spread out my vinyl runner and it was a disaster. The vinyl is way too thin so the chair just sinks in. The chair itself is way bigger and heavier than I thought. Things always look smaller in the store! It just won't work. And it sits too low to my sewing machine. Looks like DH gets a chair after all! Now I have to get it back upstairs and bring back down my other chair. grrrrrrrr

    I can wait for DH to help but then I won't have time to sew cause he gets home so late. Or I can do it myself and be too tired to sew. Decisions.........

    Check to see if the chair is adjustable. Most office chairs have a way to adjust the height. You need the vinyl mats designed to go under chairs. You can get them at any office supply store.

    And, the mat needs to be the really thick one, not the cheap one...otherwise you will run into the same problems...

    Also make sure you get one designed for carpet. Some are made for use with hard surfaces like tile or wood.
