Black Friday Chairs

Posted by Admin | Uncategorized |

I'm not huge into product endorsement unless I use the products. Last year I bought a recliner from La-Z-Boy on Black Friday. It was like cheap as hell. It's now damn near the centerpiece of this room. It's my reading chair. It's my eating chair whilst watching tv. It's my movie chair.
