Decor Debacle

We waited five weeks for the delivery of two sofas from an internationally known Scandinavian flat pack furniture company, and neither one of them was correct. Geez Louise! As I mentioned in an earlier blogpost, one of the sofas was a mishmash of pieces upholstered in brown and gray. Ignorantly assuming the second sofa was correct, we hauled it up to the third floor, tore down the humongous boxes and took them to the recycling centre, and then attempted to put the sofa together Saturday morning when we had sufficient time to wrangle it.

This is as far as it got. As we started putting the eight separate pieces together like a puzzle, we soon realised they sent us two left arms instead of a left and right. Sooooooo, now we've wrestled everything back downstairs awaiting pick up today. 

On a happier note, I've set up an area in the theatre room with some shelving to hold games and a bit of Texas decor. I think the Alamo movie poster is a nice touch.

Our bespoke sofa and swivel chair for the sunroom, located directly off the kitchen, will be delivered a week from today. For the sake of the delivery guys and my sanity, I hope it's correct since we've been (im)patiently waiting for its arrival the past eight weeks.
