I don't know what it is about getting married that makes people think they need to give you all the furniture they hate. But, we were fortunate enough to get a bed, a couch, and a dresser all for free when we were first wed. Needless to say, none of it matched and it was all hideous. Our mattress was previously owned by a single man and his imprint was smack dab in the middle. The dresser didn't fit all of our clothes. And when we moved to Cali our couch broke and we weren't able to sit in the middle.
Michael and I have been planning for about a year what we want our bedroom and living room to look like. We would go to IKEA, awesome furniture store for those who don't know, and look at the show room wishing we could afford some of it. Finally, yesterday, our dreams came true and we were able to buy a new mattress, bed frame, night stands, and a dresser. I went to Ross and got some curtains and a duvet cover set. Our living room has a lot of IKEA things too. The thing that really makes it stand out, though, is our awesome couch. Unfortunately, we are just baby sitting the couch but I'm pretty sure we are going to get one just like it when its original owners need it back.
So gawk and be jealous....
This is our dresser. I'm sorry about the glare, the lighting in my room is awful and if I wanted a picture I had to use the flash.
You can't really tell but the night stands are actually attached to the bed. Rump is very excited about the new mattress.
So sexy I know!
