Living Room Update: New Couches!

Before:

We had this gray sectional when we moved in that unfortunately didn’t fit this home well, not to mention it was several years old and worn down by 3 children and 2 dogs. You can see how it made the space closed off and appear much smaller. While moving around and getting to live in new homes can be exciting, I know other spouses will totally get what a pain it can be to try to keep the same furniture in constantly changing layouts.


After moving in we spent a month going to several furniture stores, sitting on a dozen couches, to still not find anything that we loved, or anything that wasn’t 5,000 dollars (did I mention we have 3 children and 2 dogs??). I was not loving the idea of spending that amount of money on couches that could possible be worn out in another few years.

 

Y’all do not sleep on Facebook marketplace!

After:

I had been keeping an eye on local yardsale pages & marketplace to see if any amazing couches popped up, assuming that would never happen as we are in such a small town. Then this sofa & loveseat combo popped up from another military couple moving away and they were perfect!

The style with the -worn in leather look- and the studs match our home perfectly. Not to mention they are super comfortable and in great condition. I was weary about purchasing a couch from a yardsale page (it kind’ve feels like buying a used mattress?). But I just made sure to ask about damages, if it was a smoke free home, etc. These checked off all the boxes and were super clean. And the kicker…. They were 100 bucks! I am obsessed with how nice they look in this home and they fit this space SO much better, the living room feels twice as big. I hope you all love them too!
