Adding Nailhead Trim and Gorgeous HomeGoods Chairs- A Thoughtful Place

As I was blog stalking yesterday I ran across Courtney's FUN purchase from HomeGoods!  Well, since it was three of my favorite things, gorgeous blue color, a great HG find and nailhead trim, I knew I had to share it with you guys!  I wish I could snatch these little boogers up myself!!!  Thanks to Courtney for letting me share!!  Have ya'll been to her blog, A Thoughtful Place?  If not, you are missing out!  She is one of my FAV people in bloggyland!  Go say hi!

Look at the blue chairs Courtney picked up from Home Goods! She loved their shape and size and knew they were great for in front of their fireplace. "The added seating really helps in our living room when we entertain. I also appreciate that the conversation area is not all facing the television."  So the blue babies looked like this in the store:
"With the addition of upholstery nails, they have much more character and I love the little added bling." (I couldn't agree MORE!)
