I have some new things to show you. About two months ago, my chaise on my couch broke. I put wood pieces underneath, but it was never level. And it being off made my hip hurt.
So, being on the last month of paying off some long term bills, I went to Ashley furniture and opened an account, to be paid off before any interest is charged.
Here’s what I purchased…
I bought a faux-leather couch and chair. I was only going to buy the couch.
But then I came home, got online, and looked at the couch on their website. It was priced $200 less online. So I phoned them and told them what I’d discovered.
To get them to give me that same discount, I said I’d buy the chair if they’d throw in the ottoman.
I’ve been holding off showing you the sweet deal I got at Kirklands. The framed cows in the pasture was half off.
On that particular day, all the framed prints were 20% off of the half price. They said if I’d open an account, they’d take another 15% off my purchase.
So I ended up getting that huge thing for 85% off! I was thrilled, because I just loved it.
I found this unfinished table at Wayfair. I painted it French Blue. It is 32 inches by 32 inches.
I was very particular about the size, because I didn’t want to overwhelm the small space.
This beloved cow painting went over to another wall in the living room. I’m still in love with it!
Charlie didn’t like it that I moved the chair from in front of the window. But now that summer has arrived, it was just too hot being that close to the window.
So I made him a soft cushioned spot on the trunk so he can still look outside.
I framed some of my own photos a few months ago. These two are on either side of the Kirkland’s cows in the pasture painting.
I already had the frame and mats. The cost of having the two photos developed and enlarged at Walgreens was $3.99 each.
Here’s a wide angle view of the little dining space adjoining the living room. Of course Abi manages to get into most photos.
Charlie is over in his spot where he looks out the window.
So this is what I have been working on for the past few months in my apartment.
