SO according to Instagram, 43 weeks ago today, Daniel and I were sitting at Yucatan Taco Stand, drinking a beer and talking about tattoos. He already has a huge chest piece and has always wanted to get more. I on the other hand, wasn't so sure if I'd ever want one. UNTIL we came up with the idea of writing our own middle names down and getting those as matching tattoos (see above). One year later, on my 25th birthday, WE DID IT! And I am OBSESSED, OKAY. It barely hurt and I am just in love with how his boyish handwriting makes my tattoo so perfectly imperfect.
So there's that.
Onto my couch endeavor...
We bought a vintage cane sofa off of craigslist. I just CAN'T with how perfect the frame is...and in such good condition! You might think you see a few scratches, but it's in amazing shape and just needs a polish. Side note: the fabric is horribly ugly, stained and probably smelly (i'm trying not to find out). But now we have two couches, three chairs and not enough space in our apartment. We have really enjoyed our couch/chair set that Daniel contributed to the marriage. However, it's just not my style (see bad pic job above near a terrible purple rug that needs to be returned to ikea). I wanted something that made sense with my decor style. I like vintage, quirky, and cool pieces that make up my space. This couch screamed to come home to me.
I have big plans for this bad boy. I've been researching DIY reupholster jobs and I am excited to tackle that project. We'll see how it turns out... TBD.
I'm Alyssa, thanks for stopping by! A few things: I enjoy laughing, making youtube videos and thrift shopping. Currently listening to "Everything Now" by Arcade Fire. I like my coffee black and my preferred method of maxin' & relaxin' is with my husband and pup.
