I swear I'm alive, you guys. I've just been swamped at work, plus we've been trying to get ready to go out of town on Saturday (whoo hoo!). I also apparently thought it was a good idea to try and finish decorating our game room right now, so, although that's been fun, it's just made for a crazy last few days. :)
Wanna see the couch we picked out for the game room?
We toyed with the idea of theater seating, and we struggled because our pool table is black with red felt, so we couldn't use our traditional brown/cream/green color scheme.
But black theater seating really just wouldn't fit it with the rest of the house, so I thought a nice neutral would be more consistent and would still go with the black (and eventually, we'll replace the red felt with tan to match). And I'm LOVING that we have enough room for a sectional - we've been wanting one, and there's just not enough space in our living room.
The best part is that we found this couch on Craigslist for less than 1/2 price! To say that I'm thrilled would be an understatement. We went to check it out last night (and really loved the couple we're buying it from - if they weren't moving back to Boston, I'm pretty sure we'd be legit friends), and we're picking it up when we get back from vacation next week.
So now we've just got to (1) get some can lights installed [it's so dark up there!], (2) get a new TV and hang it, (3) find some sort of media cabinet for under the TV, and (4) figure out a "theme" and make the space pretty.
Oh wow. Now that I say it like that, it's pretty apparent that we haven't made much of a dent yet (although our checking account begs to differ). But it's another adventure I'm excited about. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with myself once we finally get this house decorated! :)
