Have you made a BIG purchase only to later realize it was the wrong choice?!
18 months ago we bought new furniture for our Family Room. We really needed a new Sofa…..and after weeks of shopping and obsessing, I ultimately decided to step outside my tiny little décor box and do something bold.
We purchased the tufted gray sofa and a matching Wingback chair with nail head trim. They are really gorgeous pieces……but they aren’t “me”.
Here’s the tufted sofa we purchased….
The main issue with this furniture however has been that they don’t have removable slipcovers. I really believed I could make them work, but after 18 months, I’m here to admit how so very wrong I was.
Within the last week, my son has spilled an entire bottle of red Gatorade (reddddddddd) and smooshed his gum into the cushions. Kids.
I hate that I can’t just remove everything and bleach it. Bleach makes life so much easier.
This furniture is basically dying a slow agonizing death. As our everyday set, it’s just getting beat up.
We eventually want to upgrade to a sectional – or get a sofa and loveseat combo – but no matter WHAT we do. It WILL be slipcovered. It WILL be white. So, until then I moved the tufted set into the Living Room (which rarely sees any human life), and our old slipcovered set back into the Family Room.
Much to my surprise, I really love how much it brightened up the room again! The gray in our other set was a little too drab for my style!
So….long story short. I stressed and stressed about buying this furniture because I was so afraid of choosing wrong, and here I am – 18 months later and back at square one. Boo.
Hey, thanks for stopping by! 🙂
