I finally have a click clack futon/sofa bed (not really sure how to describe it) for my room! I have been looking every. single. day. for a sleeper sofa, convertible sofa, click clack futon on Craigslist.
Now, after many months of searching, I have finally found one!
I liked this one from Target, but I wasn't willing to pay $160 for something that probably won't last longer than a few years.
Yesterday I was browsing Craigslist and found the same one from Target. The sellers were asking $100 for it (they said it was like new), but they were willing to go lower on the price. I emailed them and we scheduled to meet this morning so we could take a look at it.
So this morning my mom and I took a look at it...10 minutes and $75 later we drove off with it!
It needed a little bit a cleaning, but nothing some mild bleach and a rag couldn't cure.
If you look closely (or you can click on the picture to enlarge it) you can see that it's tufted...I love it!
I'm really happy with it...and I got it for half the price they're selling it at Target!
And finally I'm not embarrassed to show that part of my room. :)
In other terms of news, we're redoing the upstairs bathroom. This is one of the rooms we hadn't tackled during the renovations this summer. The toilet, bathTUB (not the shower!), and sink functioned, but they weren't in the best condition.
Here's what they've (the guys) done so far...
Something tells me they're having fun ripping out everything.
Of course, now we're down to 1 1/2 bathrooms.
The plan has changed since this post I wrote back in October. If you remember, we were going to go with a pink, but the blue tile (which we're keeping - it's in pretty good shape and it would be a lot of work to rip out) it didn't really fit. So we'll be doing white tile all around the tub, at least 3/4 of the way up the wall. Then on the right, where the sink and toilet will be, we'll do a sort of wainscoting with the tile - about 1/2 up the wall.
We've decided we'll do a light grey for the walls with hot pink accents, since it fits with the blue tile better (and because I LOVE grey :)). I am SO excited! I've always wanted to paint a room grey. I think it will look really good with the pink.
I can't wait to see how this room turns out! I'll keep you posted. :)
