You will think I’m insane…….

Remember when I almost didn’t tell you about this sofa deal?

Remember how I found them on CL…..then had them cleaned….then they mildewed…..

And I wanted to puke.

Well, here is the reminder of that post……….here.

Then, because they were stained…….and pitiful……..I gave them to Freebird for her first apartment.

Aren’t I the generous mom?

Don’t worry, I spiffed them up…….

Remember? I used drop cloths to cover the ugly spots….

Here’s that reminder of that post……here.

Well, guess what I found on Craigslist a couple of weeks ago?

Yep, and I haven’t even had the chance to tell you!

Crate and Barrel…..off-white, slip covered, queen sleeper, sofa……

Pet fee and smoke free……

No stains, tears…..and guess how much?

Down filled cushions.

Slip cover that washes and dries easily………..

You don’t even want to know how much.

The green eyed monster will come out.

Remember, it’s a Crate and Barrel….down filled, slip covered, queen sleeper…..

Drum roll please……..

$300.00!!!!!

Ok, get the drool off of your keyboard.

Here is where the crazy part is.

I thought I wanted this kind of sofa.

I thought it would love the ease of washing a slip cover.

I thought I would LOVE having the sleeper…….

The down…..

The white….

Ahhhhh….the bright, white, clean, look…….

And I do LOVE it!

But guess what I love more!

My nieces and nephews climbing all over my furniture, with no mom and dad’s worried to death they are going to stain something……

Peanut butter and jelly fingers…….

Dirty feet.

And snuggling with no fear of messing up my pretty, white sofa.

I love it so much that I decided that although this is pretty and such a great deal.

These little ones are worth much more…..

Although my babies may be ready for white….

These babies aren’t yet.

And I do not want their parents hesitating at letting them be……well, themselves…..when they are in my home.

They are worth more to me than that………

AND

My pretty white sofa……

Well……..

It can wait.

I just re-listed it tonight.

Wish me luck…..

But either way, know that I’m blessed!

Love,

Me

    Awww, Rebecca great post.  It was a great deal but an even better “deal” is having your family feeling comfortable and relaxed in your home!  Hugs!

    What’s to worry about since it’s slipcovered? Nothing a little bleach can’t handle.  If I were you, I’d keep it. But do what you feel is right for you. Your not in Ohio by any chance? LOL
