Oh Sweet Ikea

I love Ikea.  Did you hear me?  I LOVE IKEA!  It's the best store ever and today it got even better.  We discovered last week that Ikea delivers to Sierra Vista so we finally bought a couch.  See, we've been sitting on lawn chairs for two months and prior to that we had been using a double reclining couch/chair combo that had been given to us after the fire and it had seen better days.  But the point is our couch was delivered and if you know anything about Ikea you know that the furniture comes not put together - not even a little, so Rick put his assembling hat on and went to it.

The delivery guys brought it in...

...Rick got straight to work...

...The mess began...

...and got worse...

...It finally started coming together...

...Look!  It's a couch!

The mess is still there and we need to re-do the pictures, but isn't it great?  I love the green against the brown.  Now we just need some pillows and a nice little rug and a sweet storage/coffee table.  Ahhh.  Life is good again.

way cute - speaking of pillows - try finding some placemats to make your pillows; they turns out way cute and are only a few dollars to make depending on the cost of the placemat

Ok, I had NO idea that you had to put together the couches! I don't know why it didn't dawn on me, most of my furniture is from Ikea. Wow.

That looks so nice! I like the green too. I swear you guys talked about getting an orange couch. Am I drunk?

A little bit...

Orange bedroom, green couch.

Thats great! I love the green. I have had my black leather couch for 12 years now and I "fix" the cracks in it with black paint. Someday I am hoping to get a new couch too.
