This is a post where pictures speak louder than words, so without further ado.....!
The "before" with our lawn furniture (and dining chair) that served us for 5 months in our time of wandering the wilderness:
Exhibit C: A Karl:
Eve of the sofa and chair's arrival, the empty living room:
We're so grateful to have nice cozy furniture again. I love how this couch & chair set is exactly to the "T" what we were looking for (nail-head trim and all!), and a much better quality than the first one we had ordered. It was a blessing in disguise that our initial couch deal turned sour. We're both very pleased with the workmanship of the pieces (England - american made!) - we'll see how they stand the test of time!
First major purchase - check! A big step towards starting to make the living room we envisioned! *does a little dance*
What do y'all think - should we have a "couch" party now that we can have y'all over without the BYOC advice? ;-P
