Furniture Shopping?

September 26th, 2009 at 08:20 am

Crazy. We are thinking of going furnture shopping today. Of course, this is different than furniture buying, right?

We have a 90's mauve and green printed sofa in our front living room. It was given to us several years ago. At the time we kept it in our basement. Now...it sits in the first room visitors see. Ugh. I'm so tired of it. I tried slipcovers, but they are sloppy.

This week, I saw an ad for a couch I'm interested in. We are going to look at it. The ad states it is $499.00. Great price! But I need to see the quality.

I actually may go with it even if the timing isn't right. This couch is becoming a need. My sanity can't take much more of this crazy couch.

The couch is actually in great condition. No tears, holes, or rips. It's comfortable to sit on. It is ugly! Word to the wise, don't purchase a printed couch...it's just going to look outdated in 10 years.

    Boy, are we in the same place! I am obsessing about new furniture (as evident in recent posts). I was thinking about trying slip covers - but am now wondering if its a good idea?

    Best of luck on finding new furniture. Can you post a link to the couch you are looking at?

    Ohhh, and don't forget you could sell the old one on Craigslist or to a relative to offset any costs incurred in getting the newer one.
