We made a (slightly) impulsive purchase last week. Our den has a real couch now!
In truth, we had been thinking we wanted to replace our “day” bed with a pull out sofa one day. I just didn’t think that day would come so soon!
I’ve been frequenting Craigslist lately hoping to find my last two kitchen chairs for a dining table project (which is not going so well right now, but that’s another story). And this sofa just came up and smacked me in the face. I called, I went, I saw, the husband (and our good friend, Micah) did some heavy lifting, and that was that.
It’s a big leap (if you ask me) in bringing the room into the more mature, put-together one that I have in my mind’s eye. Not to mention, it’s less awkward for people to watch TV at our house. Not that you’d come to our house for the TV-watching experience. We’re not exactly cutting edge.
Pretty good for $200, yeah? I thought I was getting a real steal. Maybe I did, but it had a few more flaws than I first thought (nearly always the case, in my experience). More like a very fair deal.
But, we’re happy. Plus, I sold our bed frame for $45, so it really only cost us $155! I also like that I can still use the same fun pillow creations with the couch upgrade!
Just to remind you of how the space looked before:
Maybe pull out beds aren’t known for their comfort, but, hey! You’re welcome to stay at our place anytime! 🙂
