Wanna see my new napping buddy? Hahaha (add 5 more minutes of laughter/sobbing) NAP?!? HA! As if! Okay, well she is a very nice spot to watch Project Runway and Superstore, with my eyes open, surrounded by 4 boys who giggle when models try on clothes or when Glen says just about anything.
After years of waiting and plotting, I have my new sofa.
You can now see that there’s actually a doorway there to the right and hey, walk into the other room… what a concept! Except that the last sofa completely blocked off this door so we are still walking around like a bunch of idiots. Habits are hard to break!
I really didn’t change too much to take the photo – I kept lagging because I wanted new pillows and I wanted to restyle the shelves and a new rug… But hey, THAT SOFA IS BEAUTIFUL and so only look there. I do have plans (don’t I always?) but in time…it’s enough training my wild boys to not spill food or sit on the cushions naked, I really don’t think I could handle rug duty too.
And would you believe this beauty is already over a month old? And has not been burned to the ground!! There were a few nay sayers, but I’ve showed them!! As of yet, I have not removed or washed the cushion covers, but I was told that it may be an ordeal… Like, say what?!
No Cinderella Sofa tale is without a little drama, and mine is no exception. Originally the plan was for the sofa to be one whole piece. Then no legos or remotes or ANYTHING could get lost in between the crack. Well, a few weeks before D-day (delivery day) I get an email that making a 14 foot sofa was just not going to happen. I could get it in two pieces that would connect together – it would be seamless, it would be perfect. I wasn’t thrilled, but I kinda figured that might happen.
When she arrived, the delivery guys couldn’t get the two pieces any closer than this. Oh no, this would not do, so I sent a photo to Clad Home and they called me the next morning and sent a tech within 48 hours to my house. BOOM.
The guy was super nice and made it right. That’s when he told me that it may be difficult to put the covers on the bottom cushions. Of course, you and I both know that I got these specifically so that I could wash them regularly. So, I have fear in my heart that it’s going to be a P.A.I.N. But I will let you know when we get there. Right now, I’m pretty thrilled. It’s beautiful, comfortable, cleans well with a rag and makes the room look much bigger.
I’m not embarrassed anymore. There’s that too.
And now I don’t find as much crap IN the sofa and nada underneath it. Small victories. We’re all enjoying it… some more than others…
So, that’s all folks! I did get the fabric we chatted about and it’s on it’s way from Thailand. And the rug we have now is way too small for the room, so I’m thinking Black Friday deals may be when I pull the trigger on something new… I can train them by then, right?!?
