This past weekend, I was finally able to purchase a couch for my home. YAY! I am so very excited to finally have a couch and have something to sit on. I was growing tired of standing in the kitchen, sitting on the floor or at the dining room table. I, of course went to my favorite place – IKEA!! I thought long and hard about an Ikea couch as opposed to a higher price furniture store. I was going to go with a gorgeous $1600+ couch that I LOVED from Z Gallerie but settled on the most economical choice for right now.I may still invest in that couch but I am happy with my choice and my deciding factors for Ikea’s Ektorp couch.
Now, I already knew that I wanted a white couch. As you may know I do have two children but they are both teenagers, which now that I think about it is probably worse than having toddlers when it comes to spilling things but can you say Scotch guard!
- I liked the washable feature of the Ektorp couch covers.
- Extremely economic.
- Gave me two options for a white couch cover (100% cotton or a linen/rayon blend).
- I could take it home same day.
- The pillows are soft and plush yet firm.
Now, I love putting Ikea items together. The only thing I wasn’t looking forward to was having to fight the cushions into their covers but I prevailed. 🙂 I am extremely happy at how the living room/library is panning out. Next up…media cabinet and television.
The start of the process…Woosaaaah
Finished result. 🙂 (after the big cushion fight)
Live and love in positivity,
