Cheri and I took the plunge today and finally replaced our grimy old couch. We got the Ektorp loveseat from Ikea with the cover that matches our other chair (not pictured).
Yesterday we reserved a pick-up truck to rent from Avis to haul the couch from Ikea to our apartment. We did this because it was much cheaper than having the loveseat delivered ($80 versus $300).
We had made the reservation to pick up the truck this morning at 10 am. When we got there we were told that the truck was being brought in from another location and would be there shortly. Shortly translated to 90 minutes. We were easily upset since we wanted to return the truck the same day. When the truck finally arrived I asked for a discount and the Avis guy surprisingly gave me one. He knocked $30 off our rental. Cheri and I were pleased as we drove down to Ikea to pick up our new couch.
While we were down there we saw a coffee table we liked too that was on sale and went ahead and picked it up. As you can see from the picture its been put to good use.
This weekend we went to Ikea and bought a new chair and ottoman. We got a Poang chair and ottoman. We picked this one for a number of reasons. First, we could customize which combination of cushion color and wood color (which let us get the bad ass red and black combo). Second, its super comfy for my booty (which always helps).
And today, we went out to Best Buy and got a new digital camera. We got a Kodak Easy Share V803. Its really nice and easy to use and takes great pictures without too much fuss. You can checkout my Flickr stream to keep updated with the many pictures I’ll be uploading.
