It took a few days longer than promised but our newly recovered furniture arrived home Sunday afternoon. It was ready Sunday morning but Canada was playing Russia for the gold in the World Juniors Hockey tournament and I wasn’t leaving until the game was over … and just in case your interested it was a heck of a game, it wasn’t looking good for Canada but in the end we came away with the gold 😀
But back to the furniture … we are really pleased with the results, well we were a little disappointed with the couch but hubby fixed what we didn’t like. The original couch cushions were attached and we had asked the upholsterer to make two separate cushions so that we could rotate them. He did that but had some trouble hiding the hinges, which is why it took a few extra days.
We didn’t notice how bad that area of the couch looked until we had it set up inside Maxx and I’m sure we could have taken it back and had the upholsterer fix it up but having hubby do it was just easier. It’s not easy getting it in and out of Maxx and we are really lucky to have such a great neighbour who just shows up anytime heavy lifting needs to be done 🙂
We had the foam replaced in both the chairs and the couch and right now it is really hard, I feel about three inches taller when I sit in my chair, but I’m sure it will soften up in time.
And the dollars and cents … well it wasn’t cheap but buying new furniture wasn’t going to be cheap either and it would not have fit in as well as our existing furniture so we are happy with the just shy of $2,000 (gulp USD) that we spent. Hmm maybe this will be next years Christmas present as well.
Until next time …
