We have been sitting on an old Ikea couch for the past few years (with a cover tossed over it) and recently it caved in every time someone sat on it. We propped it up with plastic tubs and stablizing-type whatever's we could find... while we saved up for a new couch.
We pretty much thought that we would get a new Ikea couch as soon as the opportunity presented itself. But two weeks ago when we realized we finally could get a couch, I looked online at Ikea and learned that the couches weren't really fitting the dimensions of our living room. They also seemed a bit expensive to me...after having to buy all the little extras that aren't listed in the base price. When I looked online at furniture stores all the couches looked much too big for our small living room.
So I Googled, "small couch". After annoyingly clicking on a couple of kids couches I finally found HomeReserve.com This is an amazing company who makes sectionals and sofas that you build yourself (like Ikea). So I was able to find a sectional combination to fit our living room perfectly. I loved how you could order a strip of material to make it look like a full love seat in one part and not all different chairs stuck together.
I chose from 100 colors to find my perfect color and fabric. I couldn't believe it when I found the color because a while back I had been looking for that exact golf-course green in a rug. But after putting all that couch in my living room there wouldn't be room for a rug anymore so I decided to take a chance and go green with the whole couch. Now I am quite pleased with the bold pop of color in our plain living room. Do you think it is a bit wild?
It took my Hubby, my Dad and I about 4 hours to put it together.
Here are a few photos of the building process.
