Karl is Here!

Our new Karlstad sectional couch from IKEA arrived yesterday! We just ordered it on Monday and it came less than 48 hrs later! Amazing! I have assembled smaller items from IKEA- bookcases, chairs, etc. but a huge sectional was pretty crazy! We were pretty intimidated by all the pieces but it came together rather smoothly! Check out our controlled chaos:
 No it's not Stonehenge, It's our new couch!

 That's a lot of hardware!

 No there wasn't a tornado, we're just assembling a couch!

 Can you find the cat in this picture?
 putting on the covers
 curious kitty
 getting close!
 Finished! It only took 1.5 hrs!
And the pillows we already had look so good on it!

So this is your Thrifty Tip of the day: If you assemble your own couch you save big bucks! And it will fit down your narrow basement staircase! I love it so much! It's super comfortable! Merry Christmas to us!
More on the whole room later- we still have a lot of work to do on the rest of the room!

  3. I Love what your doing with that room down there... oh and that couch looks heaven compaired to the old fellow that was there!
