Craigs List

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.

Yay! Craig's list is my best friend. I think I will never buy a new piece of furniture, ever. What's the point with kids? I love the couch.

I love craigslist! You can find anything on there if you look hard and long enough! Glad you found your couch!

Great couch!! Kara also loved Elise's glasses. Kara had to get glasses this summer, and didn't know any other child who wore them. I think it made her feel better to see a friend wearing them. She thought Elise looked "cuter with glasses".

I love Craigslist! I would say 80% of any furniture I have is from Craigslist. It's so great. Awesome find.
