so, how bout that couch!

today i’m giving you an embarrassing little peek into our living room, nearly 5 months after we moved in. yes, that’s patio furniture covered in mis-matched sheets (because i don’t want the dogs to ruin the white sunbrella covers…i promise i’m not the type to wrap my furniture in plastic.  usually.)  and i can’t be bothered to style the coffee table, hang art or otherwise decorate it because really, it’d be putting makeup on a pig, as the saying goes (for the record, i love pigs).

remember when our living room looked like this?  me too!  *sigh*  but moving into our own home and then starting pretty much over from scratch with the decor isn’t cheap.  so we had to sell our old couch to afford our new couch. and our new couch is taking FOURTEEN WEEKS to get here.  and it took us 12 weeks to find a couch that would work with the awkward layout of the room- so i figure when all is said and done we’ll have spent the first seven months in our new home with a patio furniture couch.  it’s a glamorous life we’re living.  :)

i’ll be excited to share some of the decor changes when they start happening. it will be fun to see this empty space transformed, one piece of furniture and decor at a time.
