SM and I have gone back and forth about the purchase of a new sofa for my spare room.
The spare room is where I like to hang out during the winter months. It's my reading/TV/napping room. I like this room because it's right beside the kitchen so if I'm cooking something, I'm right there. I also like this room because of the floor to ceiling windows. I still feel I'm outside even on a cold winters day. I feel all snuggled in. It's a shabby room. Pillows, throws and blankets are everywhere because if it's my room, it's the dogs room too. I'm a puppy snuggler.
So we've been looking at new sofa's and we've also been watching Craig's list for a used one. I have no problem with a used sofa but I did have conditions.
It must be leather, a decent color, non-smoking household and no dogs or cats. Now the first three make sense but why no dogs or cats? Because cat piss is the WORST and also if there were other dogs than MY dogs might sniff and chew it to death.
Oh...No, not that version of her (grin). This version below...
(Separated at birth?...grin) Casey is only 2 and enough of a pup still that she might think that the sofa is a chew toy. So I didn't really want to buy a new sofa.
Sunday morning SM had Craig's List up and found an ad for a green leather sofa out by Lake Norman. A phone call later and we were heading out for a Sunday Morning drive. Lake Norman is about an hour's drive away. I hadn't been out there in years. We followed the Garman and ended up right ON THE LAKE. A beautiful home. Nice guy. They just wanted to get rid of it. Sold.
So here it is. My "Good Enough" sofa.
We paid $75 for it.
