On Thursday, Jesse and I purchased: A REAL COUCH. And a rug! On Friday we completed the assembling and moving and discarding, etc., etc., etc. And now....drumroll please...we have a real living room!
Such utter squalor! How could we live like this! Notice the lack of back support! (Also, I found that red diner-y couch in the garage, and it looks awesome but it is very, very uncomfortable.)
Yes! A blue AND orange couch! We were going to get all blue, but Ikea only had one blue cover left, so we took it and Jesse purchased the orange cover in a moment of unforeseen brilliance. We also got a grey shag rug, some black couch pillows, and Erica got a tall lamp!
It seats six people, comfortably. We always have friends (and stray cats) over, so we want as much seating as we can get!
This photo quite demonstrates our tall ceilings. We plan on eventually painting that back window wall one color. On the right is Jesse's new Bowflex. HAHAHA. Also, on the left, the top comes off of that table and is a poker table - hells yes! And obviously those two bookshelf units full of DVDs is the reason we spend so much time on the couch...
The other half of our apartment - you can see where we need to paint the outer walls of our rooms. More improvements are on the way! We have about eight million posters we need to frame (if it weren't so damn expensive...), some paint jobs, some more storage unit construction. But, like I said, work-in-progress!
PS I obviously write to you from the couch right now. The blue side, just sayin'.
