More bargain shopping

We recently got some new furniture. We needed it BADLY. For furniture we shop at Ashley. We've been to a gazillion other furniture stores but Ashley seems to be "the" place for us. It's where we got our bedroom furniture, our dining room furniture and now our family room and living room too!

We originally went to get a new couch for the family room cause our current one was literally falling apart. Structurally it was still good but despite the fact that we got durable soft denim ~ it was coming apart at the seams. We actually do love looking around at Ashley (despite what I previously said about shopping). We were able to narrow our decision down to just a few and again ~ they were having a great sale. They had sofa/loveseat/coffee table and end tables on sale for a great price, plus double your tax off the total price, free delivery and no interest for a year... so we took two! We ended up getting a set for the family room and one for the living room.
Here's the family room sofa.  As you can see, it passes the sleeping test! I tried to take another pic this morning but I guess the couches are too comfortable cause this is what I found when I went out there...  Both of them asleep on the couches ~ And yes, I need to recover some of those pillows.   I'm working on it....
















Next up is the living room. In the show room, this furniture looked a bit more blue but it's actually a sea foam green.DSC00003 We also got a great deal on the rug 'cause it had been discontinued.  And speaking of great deals.... because they screwed up on one of the deliveries, we got $$ to get accessories... so we got a tree! Look what a difference it makes in the room

I also recovered the rocking chair to match the rest of the new furniture.  Now I just need to get some art up on that big ol' plain wall ~ but I've got some great ideas ~  so stay tuned!!!

Looks like you got a great deal! We really need a new couch. We have a handmedown sectional that doesn't want to stay together.

I love the new furniture! :) Our family room furniture is light green, too--I love green. Very nature-ish. :)
