New Couch

We ordered a new couch from West Elm to finally replace to old, brown, cat scratched, ikea couch that I had been dragging around each time I moved since 2003. It is the lorimer sectional in charcoal faux-suede. Charcoal faux-suede was not the stock fabric for the couch, but we wanted it because it would be harder for the cats to get their claws into. West Elm said it would take 8-10 weeks to deliver the couch (which is already a crazy long time), but it actually took 11 weeks.

It was such a long time to wait. But it finally came on Friday.

We probably should have measured before we ordered it, because it might be a little too large for the space. If we were on "designed to sell" they would tell us it was making the living room look smaller than it is. But, it is so wonderful for both Nate and I and the two cats to be able to lay on the couch comfortably.

We had been waiting for the couch to come before we put up anything up on the walls in the living room, incase we needed to reposition the buffet that the TV sits on.

The living room is looking so much more like home with pictures on the walls.

We also put up some wedding pictures and our quaker wedding certificate/ketubah in the entryway. It is almost our one year anniversary and it's nice to be reminded of the wedding every time we walk by.

Also, Nate is getting really handy with his power tools. He built this little bench to use as a landing strip for my purse and to hide shoes under.
