Back in the beginning of July Sean and I picked out a ‘grown up’ living room set from Ashley’s Furniture. We have always kind of had an eclectic collection of furniture and we felt that now was a good time to upgrade. Well after 4 delivery delays, our new furniture has finally arrived!! Until now we had our old Ikea couch set up in the living room. I love that couch…and I will miss having it right in the center of my living space as it has been for the past 3 some years, but it’s time to embrace my new grown up furniture and I will surly find another spot for my little couch.
I was at work when our furniture arrived so Sean had to send me a picture of it. When I saw it I almost fell out of my chair, I couldn’t believe how big it was! Granted, we have a large room, but this new couch towers another foot over my little Ikea couch. It did take me a little bit of staring to get used to it, and I had to do some minor rearranging when I got home, but I think I have accepted it…and my old couch is still in view while I work through my transition period lol!
I remember when I first saw this set in the store. I immediately fell in love with it. I text a picture of it to Sean who replied with, “you had to pick the ugliest set in the store didn’t you…” Once he saw it in person he came around and at the end he was the one convincing me this was the set we needed to have. I only needed convincing because as I stated in my last post, I am extremely difficult to go furniture shopping with…thus we still have no dining room, although I have narrowed down some choices for that >.> My favorite part about this set are the crazy patterns. I’m not always so into bold bright colors but I love textures and patterns.
The only thing that is driving me crazy is I want to color in the outlined portion of that paisley chair! I obviously didn’t have enough coloring books as a child…
We are really excited about our new room and between the new furniture, the Ikea couch that we just moved over and our little dining nook behind the couch we have 12 seats…and only 2 butts to fill them! I think we need to have a house warming party soon. Speaking of that little dining nook,
We were originally trying to get rid of that table when we moved but decided to just store it in the back of the room until we figured out what to do with it. It actually turned out to be perfect for that spot and we spend a pretty good amount of time back there sitting at it.
Well I was going to stop my update there, but Sean insists that I need to post the pictures from our first floor now. And because he is the one making me dinner tonight, I should probably make him happy. Plus I promised in my last post that I’d update that progress soon.
Our townhouse is 3 stories, but the front door opens up to the bottom floor, which isn’t so bad because it gives me a large open entry way. Jack-Jack is a fan. When I come home from work he has usually waiting for me curled up on top of the table or sitting in the basket at the bottom.
Because our unit doesn’t have a garage, we have a bonus room on this floor. And because we have bump outs on the side, it is a very large room. Aside from the entryway, this is all Sean’s domain. He has effectively turned that room into a jam/recording space complete with a sound proofing booth for his drum set (thank God!)
This would have really come in handy when we lived in Florida and our house was the practice space for the band he was in -.-’ Hopefully he can get some of his guys over soon to jam with him. And maybe catch a football game in the FINALLY finished Redskins room…
I finally finished those stripes! I think they turned out great, and I used my Silhouette machine to cut out the Redskins logo. And what bar isn’t complete without a liquor carousel? Sean has also managed to get himself a mini fridge, microwave and water dispenser so on game day he never has to leave. What a lucky dog =P
OK, that’s it, I promise!
