After 'one of those weeks' last week, I was expecting something to go very wrong with our friday sofa delivery. You know those weeks.... the weeks where you're just waiting for it to end because you're worried that there is still time for something else to go wrong? Anyway, thankfully, the sofa arrived safely and all that happened was I didn't have the proper change and had the pay the delivery guys an extra five bucks. I think I can live with that.
We had spent last week trying desperately to make some room for said couch because just a few weeks ago and up until recently, after our final 'stuff delivery' from Hubs' Mom's basement/garage, our living room looked something like this: (and by 'something like' I mean 'exactly like')
Terrifying, isn't it??? Can you see our desperate (and clearly futile) attempt at instilling order? Those five colourful images framed by the dining room door. They look ridiculous now that I seem them in this context but at the time, they were the only thing keeping me sane.
Slowly but surely the living room becamse livable once again. After a few carloads of donations, a few of recyclables and garbage (have I seriously been carting around old grocery flyers for three years?) and quite a lot of trips down to the basement, the living room looks like this.....
Behold the most wonderfully comfy chaise I could have ever asked for! From EQ3 and made in Canada!
And the new and long-awaited for sofa by Lind - also made in Canada!
Doesn't the coffee table look great in front of it?
As you can see, there is still a lot to do - that's why we call them progress shots! For example, there is about 6 feet by 12 feet of empty white space above the sofa, which I now have to figure out what to do with. Oh and remember my post about saying 'No' to beige?? Well, if you haven't noticed, besides the bookshelf my living room is VERY neutral - isn't irony wonderful? In my search to create a wonderfully colourful and warm space, I have ended up with a neutral, white one. We're slowly working in bits and pieces of colour here and there, but it's going to be a little bit before the whole space comes together. But the progress is encouraging.
And I promised bunnies, didn't I? Well, I wouldn't want to disappoint!
