Recently I made private a post on my travails in moving because although relevant and real, I may offend. As much as I am chomping at the bit for hate mail I need not lose a friend. So in the private annuls of my “Journal” is where it will remain.
With that I would like to focus on the positive side of moving. This move in particular is exciting for we are not taking with us all of the stuff that people have
dumped so lovingly given us when they were upgrading themselves. We will be donating the stuff that is in “good condition” and junking the rest.
So what do I get to buy? I get to purchase a sofa, chesterfield, couch thingy. The thing is Mr. Wonderful and I are of different minds when it comes to style. I like clean lines and he likes something that feels good on his bum. Two years ago we were checking out sofas and all the ones I liked were too hard to his tender tushy. All the ones he looked like looked like marshmallows. Ugh! FFWRD to the present. We decided that now that we have room to have someone stay over we might purchase a sofa bed. An Ikea one in particular as they are lighter and easier to move. My dream would be chocolate brown leather, but I agreed that we needed to be practical and thrifty so we went and checked them out at our local Ikea. Amazingly after 15 min we agreed this.
It had clean lines and was surprisingly comfortable. But… Ikea didn’t anticipate its popularity and now they are back ordered for at least 6 months. What am I gonna do? Do I wait? Do I get something else? The thing is this particular model is very affordable.
Since I can’t solve that one now lets move to the bedroom. As some of you know for my anniversary my husband stood in the middle of the bed section of Ikea and said pick which frame you want. Now I needed to choose one that would be compatible with a box-spring so that limited my choices. I eventually chose this:
But then soon found out that all of our storage shelves we had purchase here would not fit due to gabled roof. Then I considered the armoire/dresser of a traditional flare and realized that this might neither be affordable or aesthetically pleasing. So I’m thinking of going with this:
Anyway if you have any suggestions as to what we should do let me know. Thanks.
