First, Ben taught me how to make GIFs and my life may never be the same. Keep reading for some awesome GIF action.
Second, if you follow me on Instagram, you saw that in May I found this amazing mid-century chair at a garage sale for $20. It was in really great condition (especially the under-seat supports) but it didn't come with any cushions.
