So the majority of our new furniture arrived yesterday afternoon. Thank goodness, since Terry's parents had come up Monday afternoon to help him move the couch and two chairs to our basement. We have had no furniture in the living room for two days, so if we used the DVR to tape a show, we ended up sitting on the floor to watch it. Needless to say, we are glad the furniture is here. We decided to get new furniture when one day Madison says to me, "Mom, can I show you something?" The look on her face told me she thought she was in trouble. I looked at the spot on the couch she was pointing to and noticed the fabric had split and there were small tears in both seat cushions. Terry had the previous couch and chair since before we were married and it is off-white in color, so it was time for a change and the fabric was just wearing thin. We put that furniture in the basement and I hope to get slip covers for them, so the holes don't get worse!A new end table with lots of space on top for pictures and lots of storage that I can hide a lot of junk in!
A new couch!

The other new end table!
Our new chair and ottoman - notice that Chester, our cat, is lying in the chair. He was on the chair or couch last night since they arrived. I think he even spent the night in this chair instead of being in bed at my feet. Who knew it would be so easy to get him to sleep somewhere else??
Now the only thing that we are waiting for is our new recliner. It was ordered to be of the same fabric as the couch, chair, and ottoman. Since it was a special order it will take a little longer to arrive and should be here around July 20th!
