We Are A Happy {Mid-Century Modern} Family

Work is absolutely crazy this week.  I have been on-the-go since 7:00 am this morning and I won’t be stopping anytime soon. Sigh. At least I’m my own boss, right? Note to self: channel Pollyanna thoughts. Enough about my woes.

This week, Dallan and I welcomed another mid-century modern gem into our family.  A old new couch!

Debs was a little skeptical about this $70 Goodwill purchase (i.e. she tried to act enthusiastic for me but her face said it all – “What about bed bugs!”).  After showing Debs a few of the pictures, I assured her that we had thoroughly washed this thing 2 times.  Plus we will be getting it reupholstered ASAP.  Now if I could only decide which color to go with…

So, it is with great pleasure that I announce, “Debs is on board”!

Disclaimer: The cushions don’t look so hot, because we removed the pillowcases, washed them (twice), and put the cushions back.  They be looking a little lumpy now.  I’m hoping we have it in the upholstery shop within 2-3 weeks.  Just try to envision it.

P.S. Pics of the new media console coming soon.  My first round of pictures didn’t turn out so great.  Surprised?

    camberley - 1. Couches aren’t cheap (unless you buy them at Goodwill, but you’ll still end up spending 400-600 dollars getting it reupholstered).
    2. Your couch is comfortable.
    3. I think your couch matches just fine. However, I don’t have to live with it so you do what makes you happy. ;-)
