Anyway, we decided to go ahead with selling our nice leather sectional since it's been on my mind lately to open up our family room.
We started with this
Oh...that angled wall.... :-/
Sold the couch for what we bought it for two years ago
off of Craigslist. :-)
And now have this
You may remember me talking about selling
our other couch from our reading room here.
So with that in mind, we used our couches for 2 years,
sold them and made $400,
and bought the couch above for $100.
I'm feeling pretty good about that -
even though I have to use the cash for property taxes
and not for funner things.
It brings out the creativity, right???
As for the family room, we kept these Barcaloungers
SO COMFY!!! They just take up A LOT of space!
It's not "done", but what do you think initially?
I love having a rug there, which we didn't before,
and I love how open it feels.
We're planning to put move the tv to the wall,
add a media center, etc.
On another note, I somehow got around to building this today!
It's like CRAZY long!!! Almost 95" for our entryway wall.
I'm planning to stain it a dark walnut or jacobean
and paint the boxes black or something.
They are from a toy box set!
Be on the look out for the finished picture. :-)
I hope you are having a great week!
