This couch has really started something. Since we previously just had room for our current couch and chair in our fairly small living room and most of our other rooms are small or full of furniture already, I've resisted the urge to buy too many pieces of furniture while thrifting. Now that we will have a little more room and I'm trying to create something fabulous in that house, apparently I am resisting no longer. I've picked up a lot of pieces recently. Most of them need some work - painting, a little reupholstering. I have a mountain of projects here. I'm so excited to get started on them...next Wednesday afternoon when I am a free women...well, free except that I still have to pack up the entire house.
And this thing - I'm not even exactly sure what it is (does anyone else know?), but it was $5 and it looked like it could be useful and pretty. They'll be some paint on this too. I'm actually planning a whole lot of painting - all of this stuff and some of our current furniture that is dark wood. I will probably just hide out in the garage for a week and paint after we move in - let the kids ride their bikes and run in the sprinklers and paint. It's going to be a good summer.
And the super cool $5 side table. I've been holding off on getting another one of these (they are all over the place here) for two reasons - I'm not sure if another is going to fit and I think I'm going to spend all of my time telling my children that it is not a set of stairs! And yes, it will be getting some paint too.
