For a while now I have been lusting over all the beautiful white slip-covered sofas that many of you lucky blog ladies have, so can you imagine my delight when I spotted these 2 beauties on ebay this week! I don't often check ebay mid-week, usually I save that for the weekend, but this was just meant to be (Thanks God). The seller had a "Buy Now" for $150 the pair and considering they were originally from Harvey-our ads are really loud-Norman (furniture store) I thought that sounded like a pretty good deal. I knew I didn't have any funds left for this purchase so I rang my hubby at work and told him about them. I could tell he wasn't going to give in so I caved and asked if he would like to buy them for my birthday which is later this month. I know he doesn't find me easy to buy for so his relief was almost palpable (if that's possible over the phone). The seller was a delightful lady who couldn't have been more helpful. She said there were a few marks on them, but honestly, unless you're the type that goes around looking at furniture with a magnifying glass, you wouldn't even know they were there.
I am just about beside myself with glee and can't stop glancing at them at every opportunity,lol.
Do you like the stripes going horizontal or vertical?
I can't decide which set of cushions I prefer, the plain or the stripes. What do you think?
Beautiful embossed fabric.
Just to keep you "posted" as to my progress on the grey sofa... I haven't quite finished, just have to sew the covers for the squabs/seat cushions, but in my defense, I do have my SIL staying for a few days.
I would love for you all to pay a visit to a lovely new blog. Janice from
Canadian Cottage . I have a feeling this blog will be well worth keeping a close eye on!
