I can has new couch?

Yes, I can!!

I bought a new couch today (actually, a two-piece sectional with a couch and chaise lounge). I am so excited about this. As I mentioned, I hate my old living room so much and never use it. Now I'll have comfortable furniture and it won't seem so empty. The furniture will be delivered on Friday so I'll post pictures next weekend of the old living room and the new one so you can really see why I hate the old one so much and am so excited about the new one. In the mean time, here are the floorplans I made up of the old layout and the current idea for the new floorplan. I'm sure once we actually get the pieces here, we will find out I mismeasured somewhere and things won't be exactly this way, but this should be pretty close to the final layout.

The old living room is literally nothing but a big empty space. There is a couch on one wall (under the window) and a chair all the way across on the other wall, and that's it. The big empty carpet in the middle, the book and movie shelves scattered around the room, and the TV on the coffee table don't add much.

Lookie! There are places for people to sit and they don't have to yell across the room to talk to each other! What a novel concept! I like exclamation marks! There was a TV stand at the thrift store that I really like. I'm hoping it will still be there next week so we can have something else for the TV and can use the coffee table as a coffee table. I don't want to go get it now just in case I have mismeasured and we won't have room for it all. If they don't still have it and we do have room for a TV stand, I'll probably go buy something else for the TV so we can have the coffee table.

Oh yeah, if anyone is interested, this is the sectional I'm getting.

Seems like the new furniture will be a major improvement. Looking forward to the 'big reveal'. ;)

I can't wait for Friday. I'm going to be like a six year old the week before Christmas.

That looks like it'll be much cosier! I hope everything fits as you expect it to.

The link to the new furniture isn't working for me, btw.

Thanks. I'm fairly confident it will all fit, but my roommate is worried there won't be enough room to walk around it. We shall see.

Hmmm... I wonder why the link isn't working. When I click it, it opens just fine. Very odd.

Yes it does. And it's very cool! I like it a lot.

The new sectional looks awesome. Can't wait to see pictures! (Exclamation marks are your friends.)
