Step two? Check!

The vintage couch is mine!  And it’s glllllllllllllooooooorious!  Enjoy…

The couch!

Ok, maybe it’s not for everyone, but I just love it.  I wish the curve were on the other side so that it could define the space a little better, but what am I going to do, complain?  Heck no!  I got this sweet couch for $100 and that included delivery.  The kid probably would have taken even less, too, but I didn’t want to be a jerk.  $100 for such a cool couch!  It’s a Valentine-Seaver Original and my trained eye places it at Vintage 1961 (I completely made that up — well, the year, not the brand).  I think it’s just so peachy.  And the best part is that it really made the lower level (not ‘basement,’ people!) so much better for much less than I thought I might have to pay.  I know there’s still more work to be done, but I feel we’re on our way.  And now, I don’t want to leave.  I just love it here.

Also, let me point out to those of you with a critical eye, the space really is not crowded, though it may appear that way in my zoomed photo.  The treadmill is in plenty of space behind the couch and there is a lot of space to the side of the couch, so that the murphy bed can still be pulled down without having to move furniture.  So, there.

    If anyone is wondering, the stool is a stunning example of Johnson Creek Middle School Wood Shop Project, circa 1989.

    Oh. MY. God. Kate, it’s perfection. I LOVE it so much! I cannot believe you got it for $100! Nice work.

    And yes, I was wondering about the stool. Thanks for that info, Aaron. Nie work, as well.
