One of the major purchases that we wanted to make for our new house was a new couch. Mr. Moore and I had always lived on hand-me-down couches (quite happily so…), but felt that we finally needed a grown-up couch.
We went where any other grown-up, DIY, frugal, hippies go for new furniture.
I can’t even remember how long ago we bought our IKEA couch because like any other grown-up, DIY, frugal, hippies… we had to find a new home for our “old” couch. We (not me) listed it on Craigslist a few times at constantly dropping prices. Finally, the price dropped to $0. A pretty sweet deal for a pretty sweet couch, but, we had NO takers!
But! Today! Finally! After living with a giant IKEA box in our house instead of a brand new couch for far too long, a very lovely young lady agreed to accept our offer of a free couch.
Oh, I was sad to see it go! But, oh so happy to say hello to our new couch!
We moved the old gal out to the porch and had a few parting moments with her before she was carried off to Brooklyn in a ’94 Chevy Astro.
Then, we filled that little hole in our hearts (and living room) with our BRAND! SPANKING! NEW! IKEA couch.
(After putting it together, of course…)
