Math was never my strongest subject. In fact, I loathe math. However, math has somehow found it’s way into my life… in baking/cooking, in counting with Molly and even in measuring pieces of furniture. Oh yes, this beautiful sectional we got ON MAJOR CLEARANCE will definitely fit in our family room! We measured the family room and then measured the couch. We bought it and I was SO SO SO EXCITED for it to get delivered yesterday.
IT DIDN’T FIT UP THE FRIGGIN’ STAIRCASE IN OUR TOWNHOUSE.
Seriously, those poor delivery men dealing with a hormonal 30 week preggo crying about her beautiful couch. Who thinks to measure the stairwell? I guess we learned our lesson about getting furniture into a townhouse. I just want to be able to sit on a comfy couch in my family room. Is that so much to ask? (First world problems like whoa).
Anyway, Belfort gave us store credit so we immediately went back after Ben left work last night and after measuring the stairwell… plus googling about how to figure out if a couch will fit through the doorway. Apparently, it’s a common problem. I think someone should develop a website where you can put in all the measurements and a big green YES will appear if it will fit and a big red NO if it doesn’t. That would be super helpful while at the store.
So we measured and measured (and chased Molly all around the damn store) and I swear the inventory on couches that would actually fit was pretty slim. Why are couches so big these days? (fat ass Americans) But we ended up finding a couch and love seat that we really like and they are in a color that I didn’t expect I would ever buy. Unfortunately, it wasn’t on clearance so we had to drop a couple extra hundred bucks, but whatever. Plus, it can’t be delivered for another month. Ugh. BUT we do have a couch and tv in the basement… it’s just not my favorite place in the house right now. Maybe it will give me the motivation to fix that.
Here are our pretty couches! I love the tree print pillows, but I’m not really digging those geometric ones… so I’ll probably donate those and hit up Home Goods for another option. And I want that chair on the left. Maybe in a few months I’ll go back for it.
