S P A C E S: chelsea's new to me midcentury couch

 i feel like when you get your first place you get a hamy down couch from a friend or something from the thrift store. when i moved out of my single bed apartment this summer i chucked the given to me couch and decided to go on a long journey (felt like forever) to find the couch of my dreams. at first i was willing to pay a pretty penny for a midcentury couch but i always felt in my gut that if i kept on searching every thrift store in virginia and craigslist page that i would find it. i am so glad i waited. we were on a mini vacation with andrews parents last month in a small town mount jackson and i found the one. 
yeah it smelled pretty bad after being stored in a basement for probably thirty years.. and it had these hideous silver legs. but with a little love, lots of hours soaking and scrubbing this baby.. it is perfect. i threw on these big yellow pillows just so when you are lounging on the couch you have a comfy pillow to rest your head on. (but when we have guests they are put away!)

  1. The couch is gorgeous but I especially love the shelf! It looks so elegant, yet edgy because of the pipes. I wish my boyfriend was that handy :)
