My Obsession With Red Chairs...

I love my house...it is me...splashes of red...quilts...paintings...books...white dishes...white wood furniture...we have lived all over the country and we have cherished pieces from everywhere.  But in prepping my house for guests...I realized a very important thing.
 My husband and I spill over into every room. 
We share our walk in closet but we have taken over every other closet in the other three bedrooms.
Every drawer is full.
We have no empty spaces.
When I want more space...I buy a bin...fill it...label it...and put it in the basement.
The basement is becoming a scary place.  The basement is neatly organized with bins...
but there are a ton of bins.  Bins in every color of the rainbow.
Bins filled with clothes and who knows what else. I started with seasonal colors but by now they are totally mixed up. I can not own 10 orange bins of Halloween stuff...that is just not possible.
Someday soon I will be as ruthless with the bins as I was with my books.
That brings me to the red chairs.
I wanted extra seating for the family room which again...is comfy for the two of us.  I have the sofa.  Den has the overstuffed big red chair.
I will share my sofa with our guests and someone can sit in the baby red chair...which I put together from IKEA!!!
I put this together, too. 
You cannot have enough red chairs!!!
