I Finally Bought a Couch!

I have been looking for a couch for the family room for quite some time now. Originally I wanted a sofabed, then realized that I didn't really want to encourage people to stay here for extended periods of time.

Everything I saw was, eh, but nothing really caught my eye until I found this on Craigslist for $40! I probably could've offered them a little less, but whatever.

It's a little smelly (what do you expect, it was in a place w/ two bachelors that had laundry piled up on it) but super comfy.

The only real problem (which I didn't notice until I brought it home) is that it's missing two small cushions that go next to the armrests. In the picture above you can see the mangled case for one of them. The picture below is how it looks with bottom cushions pushed all the way over. I think two 2" foam pieces covered in a simple linen colored...or perhaps red or orange...material will be an easy fix.

I am so loving this couch. The lesson: don't buy something just for the sake of buying something, wait until you find something you love.
