This is it!

Well, this is it! The couch I've been searching for 7 long months.

I found it at Home Goods. It was regular $699.00, but there are some minor smudges on it in more than one area so they marked it down to $630.00... as is. I'm okay with that. I can simply have it steam cleaned... no problemo. Check it out, it even has the nail head trim that I like so much.

Okay so now that you've heard the good news, here's the bad news. Home Goods doesn't have home delivery. Yup, you read right. If you like it, you've got to figure out how to get it home and yes, I liked it that much. I decided to pay for it right then and there and work out the rest of the details later.  

Immediately after I made that really expensive purchase, I went and bought a newspaper. I looked in the paper under hauling and found a guy with a pick up truck and a trailer who loaded it and delivered it for only $40.00... not bad, huh? I felt like this was soooo meant to be. He met me and my husband at the store about 2 hours So here it is in our apartment.

Originally, I wanted to pull the sofa away from the wall and put a console table behind it. Designer's do that all the time in magazines and on HGTV. I think it's a very stylish look, but unfortunately, I just didn't have the room. I certainly don't want everyone that sit's on the couch bumping their legs up against the island so, up against the wall it goes.

Since the couch is the largest piece of furniture in the living room, having it in the right spot can make a huge difference. I realize that I have a limited amount of space, but the last thing I want is for the living room to feel cramped. Like I said, placement of the furniture is key and I think it fits perfectly in this space by the window. I have to say, I may be broke, but I don't regret this purchase one bit. It's one thing I can actually check off my list now. ... yeah!

I think things are certainly coming together little by little. I just have to remind myself that Rome wasn't built in a day. So until next time, or my next paycheck rather. Have a great day.
