Did I tell you about……..

Did I tell you about finding my dream couches on Craigslist?

And how, although they looked great…..I had them steam cleaned to get rid of any cooties….and had them scotch guarded.

And that we had to leave them in the garage to dry……because it started raining right after getting the couches cleaned…….

The scotch guard and deep cleaning left them really wet.

It rained for two days……….

And we went out of town…..so we left a big fan running in the garage to keep the air moving.

The fan burned out.

We came home and I was soooooooo excited to move them into the house.

We had our furniture moved out onto our deck to make way for our “new to us” couches to come in……..

And Romeo said…….”Honey……you need to check them before we move them in the house……they have purple spots all over them?”

And I thought……..please tell me it’s not mildew.……

And with the humidity……..

The fan going out……..

The wet cushions……

There was mildew all over them.

And then when trying to clean them, it created the white spots wherever the mildew had been.

Or just this filthy mildew look?

Oh…..that’s right……I didn’t tell you did I?

I didn’t tell you…..

Because I could vom……...it.

I am so sad.

I’m telling you people. If something  is going to happen…..it happens to me.

Don’t stand outside with me in a rainstorm.

Chances are…….you’ll get hit by lightning.

I’m telling you now because we are packing them up now for my daughters “first apartment” next year.

And now……

I am still looking for a new couch.

Got a favorite slip covered sofa?

Now, I am back to debating JC Penney’s slipcovered sofas……..

Let me know if you know of any good deals.

: (



ps….I know you are thinking….slipcover them! But you guys…..you know I am struggling with the whole sewing thing! I got them cheap enough that I am letting them go to Freebirds new apt. because we would have had to find her a set anyways. She is excited about them…….I am sick about them ….

I will get over it. I think.

Love ya’ll.

    I am so sad for you! I loved them…my heart would be broken, too:(. I have decided on the slipcovered sectional from J C Penney & I am a card member & signed up for their rewards program. They send out random emails with an additional 20 to 25% off any order & I have gone on the website & put the furniture I want in my shopping cart & gone to checkout so I could try the promotional code & it works! The additional savings makes the shipping not hurt quite as bad! I have a few more things I need to do before we buy ours. I hope this helps-you may have already known all of this top secret info!

    That just plain sucks! Sorry for your luck – just go spend some quality with that lamp of yours! 😉

    awful experience with Jcpenny sectional, frame cracked and broke after a couple of months, they wouldn’t replace even though I had bought the insurance.  My husband took it completely apart and had to rebuild it to make it stronger, it was held together by tongue depressors for the most part

    I love my Norwalk slipcovered sofa. Had it about two years and it looks amazing still. Very comfortable and priced just right. Hope that helps, take care VBg”
