For more than a year we have not had a couch. After selling the leather one I had, I brought over an antique love seat and chaise lounge from my mother's with really no plan for anything else. Until I saw this.
It was love at first sight when I walked into Haywood Christian Ministries thrift store last Thursday. Everything was half off that day, so it would have been around $38, but I went home without it. I know what you're thinking. I just don't normally *fall* for French Provincial designs, but I could not stop thinking about it.
My mom even went the next day and almost got it but it was too long for her space.
But smitten I was, and I finally couldn't stand it anymore so we went by Saturday to see if it was still there...and it was -- but, they told me someone had looked at it and wanted to *re-do* it. "No, no," I said, standing my ground to protect it from a most likely chevron upholstered re-do. Ready to whip out my $37 dollars as ransom, they told me it was not half off. What? A whole $75 for this? Ok, I know, I know $75 is still an incredible bargain, but I did, however, still get another $25 off because they wanted it out of the store. So after $50 and a happy dance, we went to borrow my dad's truck and bring this beauty home.
Home where it belongs:-)
A white couch. I had a white couch for about 10 years---it's the
one and only main reason I got brown leather in the first place. So I know what it's like, but I couldn't resist.
Of course I couldn't resist!!
I love it, I just love it, and the price and incredible condition make me love it even more.
Things had to shift around
a little a lot in this small space to accommodate it...
But I think it is right at home with my other antique pieces...
And we are certainly happy to have a couch again...
...so we can all sit around together and watch "I Love Lucy" and "Andy Griffith" on Sunday afternoons. Because I look forward to that all week:-)
I'll be joining:
