couch in the basement!

Make that couch AND ottoman. Victory.

Okay, so it was kind of a saga at IKEA last week. I'd been putting off the decision of what size couch to get ... full-size sofa, loveseat or some sort of combo with a chaise lounge. And then there was the color decision. White? Light blue? Funky pattern with blue, white and green?

In the end, I didn't really have to make any decisions. IKEA and my basement made them for me. The sofa was too big, and the loveseat-chaise combo wasn't available. Light blue cover available for sofa, but not loveseat. Green in the patterned cover clashed with the wall paint. So...

White loveseat it is.

I did get the exact ottoman I wanted, though. Dark brown leather with a removable cover for storage inside. Per.fect.

And just in case you've ever wondered what an unassembled couch looks like:

The basement is still a bit messy, but it's definitely coming together. Next step: a TV antenna and cords for my DVD player so I can actually sit back and relax on the new couch :)
