In order to do that I had to sell the existing pieces.
Well.....someone bought them yesterday.
As you can see it is kinda modern.
That was Maisy's style in the old house.
The things I loved about this furniture was that is was very comfy and you could get ANY, and I mean, ANY stain out of it.
Now on to the dilemma....
I want slip covered furniture.
I know, I know everyone goes to Ikea and buys their slip covered furniture.
I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for.
Every time hubby and I go into that store we sit on the couch. It just feels like the boards are touching the back of my knees when I sit down.
I soooo badly want to like it. I mean for $500 you can get a couch.
I just can't do it.
I think Ikea is good for people just starting out.
I mean that is where we take our kids shopping for their college apartments.
It's also great for little things around the house.....such as storage items, wine glasses, candles or throw blankets. I think it would also be a great place to buy all the items needed to redo a kitchen or bath on a budget.
Ok....now that I got that off my chest.....
honestly, I didn't even know it was on my chest...
I'm off to check out Consumer Reports to see what they recommend.
Wouldn't it be HILARIOUS if they recommended Ikea's Ektorp couch(see I even know the name of the couch. That tells you how many times I have tried to convince myself to get it).
Hope you all had a great weekend!!
