New Furniture

Buying a new house of course means buying new furniture as well. Psssh, our piddly apartment housed hardly any furniture and it was crowded. We moved into the house with the furniture we had in the apartment and sadly, the house still looked empty. Our mission: buy new furniture!

We set out on a journey to find the perfect couch. My idea was to get a dark brown leather couch. I love my tan ones so I wanted something similar and as comfy as those. No luck finding any we liked in leather but we did find this.....

We instantly fell in love! They are magnificent, comfy, and can hold about a bagillion people! Perfect for entertaining which was one of the main goals. So, these babies were seriously pricey but well worth every penny.

Before the couches, though, came the bar. Uh huh, a bar! It's awesome. We saw it at a furniture store for $1300 but somehow the same day I magically went onto Craig's List and there it was! No joke....for $400! How irresistable and perfect timing is that?! Of course we bought it! It's an awesome conversation piece! It sits in the area that is supposed to be the formal dining room. Formal shmormal. Can you see us with a formal dining room? Yea,! It's such a waste.

And here is our baby.....

*sigh* yes, I know, it's gorgeous.

Lastly (for now) is the kitchen table. Our tiny apartment sized table was no match for our monstrosity of a dining area off the kitchen (yes, there's 2 areas for that in this house). It's fabulous! I love it love it love it!

We also bought Suraya a gorgeous white trundle bed which I have yet to capture on picture. It's super cute though. As far as furniture goes I think that's all. Oh wait...the futon. No pics of that yet but it's really nice and not one of the crappy ones. It's eventually going to be housed in Andrew's game room. when you have tons of extra space you make up things and names for each room.

We have tons of space since upgrading from a 2 bedroom tiny apartment to a 4 bedroom house with 2 livingrooms and dining rooms. All this space makes me anxious to fill it up with more awesome furniture. Too bad we be po' folk and can't afford to do it all at once.
