I have been getting very impatient with my living room furniture. I call it the "church foyer" furniture. Not only have I never liked the fabric, but the fabric has been wearing in spots and even got a hole punctured from the hide-a-bed. I like the shape of the couches, and they are in good shape other than the fabric. I couldn't decide whether or not to attempt to make slipcovers, or do new upholstery. I figured for the cost of fabric and time, it was worth looking to see what I could get on Craig's List.
So, I have been looking for new furniture - preferably leather. It is much easier to clean and much more classic.
I have been casually looking at Craig's list. Unfortunately, for well-priced leather couches, you can't just look casually. So, I started to get serious about it. After looking at several, I finally found this one, and I got it for a great price. It is very comfortable, and the cushions are attached!
I love a good bargain. Persistance pays off.
