3 hours of my life...GONE.

But well worth it. Cause momma's got a new couch! Well, I will. In two months. I went to Couch in downtown Seattle to get a custom sectional done. Custom because our upstairs loft is so long and narrow that a regular sectional is way too big.

I also had to take into account two cats that like to use my current couch as their personal scratching post. So my desire for linen was out. :( I went with this slate gray velvet. It will have similar nail heads too. But bigger and wider spread.

Also, got a chair that will look like this shabby chic portobello chair--but in an oatmeal cotton slipcover.
The sectional will have similar lines to this couch. Tight back and English arms. It will be fairly deep as well. I wanted something pretty but comfy. Hopefully, in two months, I will have just that!

That sofa is going to kick some ass. As soon as it comes I want to come over and sit on it. I always think that I want a sofa in that style. Why I bought the goddamn retro Petrie from Cate and Barrel I will never know. I want a cuddlin' couch that big and soft. And I want it in gray velvet. !!

JJ-yes, yes. Of course you can come sit on it. And since it's gray we can drink red kool-aid and cheetos on it. Or maybe just ice cubes and air. Cause of how skinny we are. :)
