This past weekend my mom was visiting so I was lucky enough to be able to hit up some estate sales - sans Phoebe. I don't really do much thrifting with her, because well, she's a toddler - enough said.
Anyway, I happened to come across an estate sale taking place in a house where two antique dealers used to live. I found all kinds of goodies, and while I was waiting in line to pay I spotted this little gem of a couch hidden and lost in the shuffle.
It is in just about perfect condition, and even better was the amazingly too-good-to-be-true price of only $145.
Thankfully I was the next person up in line and after hearing it was still available, I wasted no time in snatching it up.
I know absolutely nothing about furniture styles/periods/eras, but I do know that I just love the design of this couch and it has some pretty amazing lines. Even though the upholstery is in great condition, I'm just not digging the green velvet with gold trim. So once it's in our budget (waaaay down the road), this lovely lady will be getting a makeover a la Anna Maria Horner. Ohhhh, what scrumptious fabric will I cover her in....?
So it's currently hanging out here in our dining room until we eventually get a dining room table (most likely another hand-me-down), but it's final home is going to be in my studio.
