Last Saturday I ended my long, grueling sofa quest and impulsively purchased this sofa and chair. It was a deal folks.
The new furniture arrived yesterday and my first panic-stricken thought was, did they super size my order in the truck or what? The sofa and so-called snuggler recliner that looked perfectly normal in the huge JCPenney furniture outlet warehouse look GINORMOUS in my small 1940s era living room. I was thisclose to tears as I surveyed each of the various new arrangements the boy and I tried last night in a desperate attempt to help me accept my new purchases. I was also on a lot of cold medicine and only three hours sleep, but whatever.
But enough about what I think, what do you think? Should I put this set on craigslist tout suite and try to minimize my damages, or am I (as my boyfriend says) being too critical and just need to chill? Operators are standing by for your votes.
Here's another view:
And as a reminder, this is what it used to look like with my hand-me-down, lived-with-since-I-was-12 (no lie) sofa and love seat:
Notes: 1) I do like the color, fabric and comfort factors of this new set. I just hate that they look so huge even though they're surprisingly not as wide as the old set. 2) Yes mom, one of these days I will get real window treatments.
