- Wedding: December 2014
SO and I bought a house together last April. Since then, we have been using old hand-me-down furniture that has been in his family since 1986! Thats right… NINTEEN-EIGHTY-SIX.
They were from a local company called “This End UP” and they made living room sets, bedroom sets, kitchen table sets, you name it… they made it. All out of wood. And they are essentially indestructable.
My family actually used to have the same living room set but with different cushions (we also had the bed frames) from this company, but got rid of them as they became outdated. SO’s family kept theirs forever, and when we bought our house they gave them to us and they got new furniture. These couches, chair, and coffee table would probably last another 30 years, but SO knew that I hated this furniture when I grew up with them, and I surely don’t want them for long-term use in our house.
Now, I was super grateful that we had SOMETHING to sit on in our house and that we didn’t have to fork over tons of money for a living room set right after buying the house… but I could not wait to get our own that was NEW, COMFY, PRETTY, and OURS.
And that time has come! Today we bought this beautiful living room set and it comes in a week from today (Sunday, Jan 12) YAY!
Here is the “This End Up” Furniture:
SO and I sanded and stained the coffee table. Also, today I slid the single chair into another room to stand in it/reach something, but it is usually in the living room as well. It’s just that the wood weighs so much it was too much effort to bring it back! haha
Our new furniture set!
I am so in love with the new set! We both want to get a rug since the floor is so cold, and I love the one thats in the picture, but he didn’t like it, and we both need to love our space, so we will keep looking for a rug that we can both agree on.
I think I am most excited about that accent chair! haha.
EEK I seriously can not wait for this set to get here. Its nice to have something to be antsy about other than that ring! 😛
EDIT: I really want a patterned & fun rug… not a solid color. But I kind of lack the ‘style’ gene. What patterns on rugs do you think would look good with this set? Having the floral chair is throwing me off and I don’t know what would go good with that. Thanks, yall!
