Know what is good?
Every cloud has a silver lining.
So here she is. Our dark brown couch (and our new rug). We love her so much.
I never knew watching TV could be so comfortable. I also never knew that not worrying about Mabel's muddy feet or Jane's crumbly snacks could be so blissful. And I realized that dark colors aren't depressing or dreary when paired with white walls and bright colored pillows.
Since we got our new dresser in the bedroom, we moved the old painted buffet into the living room. My mission was to paint it bright white and find some funky Anthropologie handles to replace the old ones. That's still my mission, you know, after I win the lottery. Instead I just spray painted the handles bright red in hopes of making them look like bakelite. It's also a dream because I can store all my movies and throw blankets in it. Wahoo for more storage.
