It was while browsing the AS-IS section where I saw a sofa that looked like the Pottery Barn sofa on my bedroom mood board. The only thing was that the sofa was missing seat cushions and the price was $99.99. I thought about it and decided against buying the sofa, and when I got home I started to kick myself about leaving the sofa. The next day during lunch I hightailed over to Ikea and Thank God the sofa was still there. I know it was waiting for me.
After paying $108 (the tax man must always be paid), I nearly had to pay $50 to get it delivered, but the Ikea guy shoved it in my little SUV (ok the back was open and the sofa was sticking out). Those Ikea guys are great! Remember I was at work so I had to go back to work and park in the parking deck with sofa sticking of the car. Folks were staring but after snagging my sofa for $108 I was doing the happy dance in my head so I didn't bother me at all.
It was also raining that day, but what's a little rain when you can a great bargain.
Can you imagine all the stares? hahahaha
Since the sofa was a slipcovered sofa, I bought a slip cover for $50 and I plan to get foam and batting to stuff the seat cushions.
I think I got a good deal especially since the regular price for IKEA sofa is $399 and the Pottery Barn sofa is $2,000. What do you think?
