I had a garage sale this weekend to kick off my Spring Cleaning and to de-clutter our house. Well, it was pretty darn successful! I made about $600 and managed to get rid of a lot of kids clothes, a lot of dishes and random junk that we have been storing in our upstairs bath attic storage. With the garage sale, we also decided to sell our living room furniture. While we liked our sectional, the shape of our living room is a size where we were losing a lot of space in our 10ft by 20 ft living room. I went yesterday to look at furniture and I decided on these Ashley Furniture pieces.
The couch is more like a loveseat with a chase lounger and ottoman, but it has a queen size pull out bed in it. We have to have a hide-a-bed for overnight guests! The end has a chase lounger and ottoman, but here’s the cool thing: You can move the ottoman and extended cushion to anywhere on the couch so the chase section moves where you want it – so it’s not stuck in one spot!
The bed is a full size queen, so that’s nice! I am madly in love with the blue & brown colors that are in the picture from the website, so I think I will be painting my living room in these colors.
At first, I thought to get a love seat that had a hide-a-bed, with two chase loungers and ottomans, but getting the one couch with lounger and one chair with ottoman makes more sense to open our living room up.
How much did these pieces cost me?
- Sofa Chaise Circa Taupe with ottoman: $629.00
- Sofa Chaise Circa Taupe Chair: $349.00
- Delivery 85 miles away: $70.00
- Fabric guard protection: $85.00
- The set also has a nice 5 & 10 year warranty on it… They will cover any stains, rips, tears, burns, breaks, etc.
Total after tax and delivery is just at $1200.00.
The bad thing: Well, it won’t be here for two weeks. PPFFTT The dining table is in the living room so we have a place to sit for now. Hey, it’s better than the bean bag chair I was sitting in last night.
The good thing: All the leftover clothes, kids’ shoes, house ware items, baby items, etc. will be donated to a Women & Children’s Shelter, as well as a portion of the garage sale cash earnings.
In the end – we all come out ahead. I was able to de-clutter, make some cash, get a new living room set & make a nice donation.
