This is our lovely dog couch…the only piece of furniture that our dogs are allowed to sit on. Don’t judge us to harshly by how disgusting it is! We do not sit on it ourselves.
The couch I have been looking at for the past TWO years is from Pottery Barn. Anyone who knows me, knows I am a sales hunter and pride myself on good finds! I cannot find another couch that I like nearly as much and is as comfortable as this one. This is the first time I have not been able to find an appropriate substitution for what I want. So, I have been putting a little bit of my tutoring money aside each week to purchase it this summer. My rationale was if I have to look at it each and every day and it has to be functional for humans and NOT dogs, I want to make the investment instead of looking at a so-so couch and always wishing I got the one I really wanted.
Our neighborhood uses a fabulous painting family. They are the nicest people and love dogs…..so they fit right into our house! They helped Tommy move the final pieces before starting the painting process this winter.
Here are the final photos of the painting. We decided to use two tones of blue to highlight the vaulted ceilings.
Dogs are already to claim their couch again while trying to get another picture of the painting.
I have already ordered and bought frames to make a collage of pictures above the couch. That is going to be my summer project along with purchasing curtains. I have found some curtains that I like on Overstock.com, but I am nervous about ordering them sight unseen. I hope to have more pictures in the next couple of weeks of the completed room.
