Couchless...and excited about it!

A bit ago I posted a picture of our living/dining room combo and asked for some serious help. LOVED all the comments and emails! (although my husband is cursing every single one of them...tehe!) So I figured the biggest thing that I didn't like about the room was the couch. I actually LOVE the couches, but they just didn't fit with the room...SO THEY ARE NOW GONE! I sold them to a super sweet friend moving out into a new place and in need of them... PERFECT FIX! (and now I can still visit them if I start to miss my first big purchase after college)


Now I just need to make my way to Orlando to go to Ikea and pick up this baby. (not to mention borrow someone's truck...wow, this is a big process!)








I am DEFINETLY getting white, but don't you worry....I am purchasing extra covers just in case my threats don't work on my kids and they spill something.



I KNOW it will look great, and will make me sooo happy! I will add a few of these




and these....


This BEAUTY will go in place of my other BIG chair, and it makes me sooo happy! (although a bit nervous with the kids.....but I can't keep it in hiding)


I am soooo excited! I better start calling around to borrow a truck! THANKS for all of your ideas!!! XOXO!!!!

Ooooh lucky you! The couch looks wonderful ~ I love the chair (want one just like it!) and the pillows are fabulous. I ordered mine this morning before heading off to my classroom. Once I figure out what I'm doing with our master bedroom I may need to order a few more!

I also left you a message about the crown t-shirt. Love your items!

i have that EXACT same couch in WHITE!!! it's my favorite, and i too got extra covers. we pop them in the wash, and they are like new over and over again. have fun with them! they are identical to pottery barns pb sofa, but waaaaay cheaper:) they are really stiff, but they break in over time. have fun with them!

i also wanted to add that we have a really expensive pottery barn slipcovered sectional, and we actually like the Ikea couch BETTER!!!!!!!!! i will never buy a sofa that isn't slipcovered ever, it's so great for spills and dogs! xo

LOVE that Ikea couch- my sister bought the same one a few years ago and loves it. She bleaches the covers and lays them flat to dry and they come out perfectly! With pets and paint around her all the time (she is an artist!) the couch still looks great and it is soooo comfy!! Good luck with it! xoxox Holly
