The Front Room

So, we listened.

Overwhelmingly, the consensus was: what the heck are you thinking, do not, and I mean do NOT get a white sofa.

We have been so anxious to finally purchase a piece of furniture for our front room– and it finally happened.  These were the front runners:

Via Ikea
Via World Market

The problem was that the third one, our favorite (and a sleeper sofa to boot)–was the most expensive.  When we found it on clearance at our local store– we thought we’d struck gold.  Until, of course, they sold it out from under us.  All they could offer us was the same sleeper sofa– in a robin’s egg blue color.

Humph.  We walked away.

But.  They called a week later and offered us the blue sofa AND a slipcover of our choice for the clearance price.  That’s what I call a hard bargain.  So, from now until we get the new slipcover– we have a blue sofa!

And gosh-darn-it… I actually like it!

This is in progress.  More pictures to come later!
