Out With the Old

Maine houseTwelve years the hubby has complained about this sofa….too low, the seats not deep enough.  True, it wasn’t the most comfortable but, hey, it was a good piece of furniture and you know how hard it is to replace something that isn’t worn out.

Maine houseSo, after years of procrastinating the hubby insisted it was time for the old one to go, and I can’t say I’m all that sorry.

Maine houseAnother sectional replaces the displaced one. Though it is the same dimensions as the other,  it looks much heftier, sits way better and is much easier for tall people to get up from.  A bonus is that it’s good for napping, at least for the hubby.

Maine houseThe same pillows I made for the outed sofa still work, but what I need is for you seasonal decor experts to come and add your magic.  I’m sure there would be lots of fall color and texture!

Maine HouseI’d like to replace the coffee table, but for now I’m thinking a new paint color would do.  Any suggestions?

At least getting rid of the old was a first step, and it sold on Craig’s List in a matter of minutes.  Someone shorter than us appreciated a very good deal!

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

  1. Hi Linda.. love your new sofa’s.. enjoy them naps.. there’s a huge range now of chalk paints.. in the most amazing range of colors.. but having said that.. I’d go white.. to match your white window frames.. and then bring in lots of bigger white scatters.. and for the pop of color.. add a collection (at least 3 or 5 … things always work better in odds.. ) blue/white china pieces onto your new white table.. mmm.. what you think?.. xx hugs j

  2. Love the sofa! I’d go burnt orange, dark red, or teal/turquoise! Always love your taste, whichever color you pick will be perfect 🙂

  3. A new sofa! You lucky girl!!! PLEASE have your husband to contact my husband and expound upon the virtues of a new, more comfortable sofa!!! Ramon has been draggin’ butt on changing for nearly 10 years now, and I’m over it! I want a new sofa NOW!!!!!!!! Yours looks fabulous. The sectional fits nicely into that area. It made great sense to stick with that style. I really like the color, too. I’m all about versatility!!!

    Shirley from Housepitality Designs should be able to throw in a weighty 2 cents on the decor issue. That chick is a wiz at it!

  4. Love the new sectional! Happy hubby is a bonus for you. 🙂 I like the idea of an orangy-red for the coffee table. With your green walls, it would be great. Enjoy your new napping spot!
