And, I came home with a new sofa.

Kohsdude was THRILLED. not.

Have you gone somewhere and brought home something totally unexpected? I'll leave it open ended...

...my distance isn't because of a lack of caring. It's because I really do want to focus on a happy ending...

I haven't taken a photo yet. I will though, and post up!

I bought it last weekend. happy.gif

It's beautiful. Chesterfield style (1940s), grey-blue color, single cushion. Love it!

(It's just shy of being long enough for Kohsdude to lay down on.... whoops!wink.gif)
He's 6'2.

.... the couch is about 5.3 ft long. ...

I live right by an antique mall - it's a disaster every time I go (which is often).

Lucky for our house and finances, I'm not strong enough to carry most of the stuff I want, nor is my car big enough to hold it.

I don't understand why that guy said that to you, Appy. It's there for the pickin'. I hope you gave him "The Whitney"

When Autumn's dad and I got our fist apartment together my friend and I were driving around and saw one of those really bad wicker peacock chairs sitting out for trash. We pulled over, grabbed it, and MADE it fit into her Ford escort.
Our pitbull chewed it to peices a few days later.

When I was 14 or 15 that wicker peacock chair was the only gift I wanted for xmas. I drug that thing around and sat in it everywhere... Watching tv, eating dinner, in my room. It was awful and uncomfortable but I didn't let that stop me.

I went to help a friend with her yard sale in June and came home with Dan's Father's Day present (a new grill) in the back of his truck. But that was only unexpected for him. happy.gif

I shudder to even think about buying other people's upholstered anything. Mattresses, sofas, chairs with cushions. No offense, Kohs, but I know a parent at school where I teach who got something from Goodwill (a chair?) that was INFESTED with bugs. I always fear the unseen. Anything plastic or wood, you can clean. And you can clean cushions and mattresses but not REALLY.

I went to a car dealership the other day and bought a new car... just a smidge impulsively.

My bff furnished her apartment by going to thrift stores and buying previously loved furniture, then she had her dad reupholster them.


IF she realizes she didn't save any money because of how much it cost to redo them, she covers it up by saying that she is helping to reduce consumption.

While her furniture looks nice (b/c her dad is a perfectionist) it is certainly not the most comfortable furniture to sit in.
