Living Room Tetris – Part 2

Could I stop at 3 couches and a chaise in the living room and a huge chair in the bedroom? Nope.

The next day we go to Goodwill to search for a stool (Stool reupholstery blog post here). And I found a few things. A stool, batting to reupholster the stool, a wedding dress.

AND, we found another chair…..

Really pretty right?!

But I left it there since I had JUST bought it. Robert and I went to a friend’s house but I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

It was $50 Bit it was also 50% off. So $25+tax. It was really comfy. And I liked the low arms. I also liked the tufted back rest.

But I already had one and I didn’t want to be difficult since Robert was so good about the whole couch Tetris situation. But I wanted it. But we wouldn’t be able to get back before tomorrow. I didn’t want it sold. I had to have it.

I called the store. I asked if I could buy it over the phone and hold it until tomorrow morning. They said no. And I asked if they would hold it for an hour. Again they said no.

So I did what anyone would do; I called my mom. And asked her to go get it. (And I didn’t have a car big enough to transport it anyway.) Luckily she was free and went and got it for me for my birthday and dropped it off in my living room in the only empty space that was left.

To sum up, I currently have:

  • The day old chair for $40
  • The day old couch for $100
  • The old couch set – Couch, love seat, chaise, coffee table
  • The dining table and 2 chairs
  • The media center and TV
  • And the new chair for $25 (free because it was a gift.)
  • (And the other new chair in the bedroom.)

The chair is currently behind the chaise next to the new couch. Right in the way of the walk way (bottom right of the picture out of frame.)

My entire old living room set is up for $250 on Craigslist and OfferUp. 2 people said they would come and never did. Also, multiple people would also offer 1/2 of what I posted it for. I responded instantly “Yes I will take $150, when can you come?” but no answer so I assume they were bots of some sort.
