Old Couch - New Couch

This is our old couch. We've had it for eight years and my grandmother had it for I-don't-know-how-long so it's truly an old couch. I made the slipcover when I was pregnant so the fabric isn't as old as the woodwork - but still - old couch.

As you can see, it's pretty grimey. Living with the spills and leaks of a growing child will do that. But the cat also had her way with one of the legs and just the general body oils of being the main couch will catch up with a piece of furniture.

So we finally bought a new one.

We can't move the old one out until next week - so the boys are having a final few days of jumping, playing, and squishing each other on the old one.

You know, our old couch was a good couch though. It was comfy. It was sturdy. (For awhile we thought about just getting new cushions and slipcovers. But in the end a spring started busting through and the whole piece was getting kinda wobbly.) So in honor of our old couch, a little walk down memory lane.

Please sing The Way We Were now.
Memories, light the corners of my mind .....

Misty, watercolor memories.....

Of the way we were ....


But now it's time to introduce the new couch. Da da DUM........

It may look smaller but it's really not. It's just that the cushions are fuller, so it looks taller - but it's pretty much the same length. It's the Apartment Sofa from Pottery Barn. I LOVE it!

And now it's time to start making new memories.
