(Can you call it a 'remodel' of it's just new furniture/appliances or just rearranging? LOL)
Any long term readers of my blog will know that I'm constantly rearranging furniture. I'll try it one way for a little bit and then have to change it. I guess that's me being a typical woman. 😁
This time, it wasn't just rearranging furniture but buying NEW furniture. I'd been dying for a sectional. My living room doesn't allow for much in the way of furniture placement due to it's size and the layout. Plus and more importantly, our furniture was S.H.O.T. Thanks to the dogs and they were old, being hand-me-downs and all.
Evidence pictures below:
Note the fraying cushions and missing pillows (well, not really missing but one being used as a pillow and the other under his butt LOL)
Note the white spot on the left side and "outdoor" pillows used indoor.
Note the bed sheets bought to cover the hideousness of the cushions.
The couches might not look all that bad in the pictures but trust me when I say they were atrocious. I deliberately didn't take pictures of them b/c they looked so bad and if I did take a picture that showed them, I covered them some how.
The couch and love seat were old and used when we'd gotten them (John's parents gave them to us several years ago after THEY had owned them for a few years) and of course having a Great Dane in the home, on well-used furniture, doesn't bode well for said furniture. The springs were shot and poking holes through the lining.
Frankly, it was rather embarrassing to have anyone over and actually embarrassing to even admit on here how bad they looked.
But then we were able to buy a new couch!! Yay! I could actually buy what I wanted instead of getting hand-me-downs (nothing wrong with hand-me-downs)!
We spent the weekend looking at different places and checking out the different styles and prices. I was really wanting a sectional but wasn't sure if I'd find anything we liked, would fit well AND that we could afford.
The last store we went to, ended up having a sectional that met all our needs. The only concern we had was it fitting where we wanted it to fit, so we went home that night to measure the space and think about it.
|Pretty new pillows too! 3 of the pattern and 2 of the solid.|
So yay! New couch! Pretty couch but you can't see b/c it's covered with sheets to protect the fabric from the dogs LOL And we've actually moved it since I took these pictures b/c Rio was standing on the back of it to look out the window. We just rotated it toward the left, so now the chaise lounge is against the window wall instead of sticking out from the window wall.
New stuff makes me happy. 😁
