I know you must be very bored with hearing about our living room again and again, but after purchasing this lovely chair from Homegoods last week we got an appetite for a more serious living room makeover thinking it will probably take a few more months, we've had our furniture for over 15 years and they were in a very shabby (but not chic) state from years of wear and tear, 3 children and a very naughty puppy.
While scouring Craigslist this week (I'm addicted...) I couldn't believe my eyes! someone was selling an Ikea Ektorp set of sofa and chair with 2 extra slip covers still in the box, the set is in perfect condition after spending 3 years in their formal un-used living room!! It was nothing short of a miracle...I love this set and we've been contemplating ways to purchase and and bring it home without much success (the closest Ikea is in Boston which is 4 hours away and the Montreal Ikea is too expensive...)
So, to make a long story short we bought it and brought it home yesterday, the old set is down in the kids "zone" making a new very cozy space down there for all of us to watch movies and TV (photos to come soon).
Here is our new fresh looking living room, I am happy.
