Two evenings ago, while I was still trying to get our bookcases styled, but definitely needed a break, Chris suggested we put together our Kivik chaise from Ikea that has been sitting in our garage for about a month. Now that the room is finally to a place where we can start decorating and using the room, a place to put our feet up until our couch arrives (crossing our fingers it'll be in the next couple weeks!) is much needed.
When we opened the box, we couldn't find any instructions. I Googled around and found them, but they seemed to be more of a "How to connect your Kivik Chaise to your Kivik sofa" sort of thing. I panicked looking at all of the bolts and screws and wondering how all these silly parts go together and Chris just started putting it together.
It took less than ten minutes:
The cover we chose is the Dansbo dark gray one that we picked out way back when we put the mood board together for this room. It's a really nice, durable fabric that is removable and washable. Woot.
The chaise itself will actually live over by the small staircase (as pictured above), but fast forward to last night when we pushed it over to the other side of the room, both curled on this chaise and watched a movie with some Coldstone frozen yogurt. It was so nice to relax in our very own family room. With something to sit on! In fact, I have been sitting on this pretty much non-stop. It has become my favorite place to blog/work on your mood boards/cuddle with Greta.
The turquoise knit throw is from target and I am currently working on some little throw pillows for the chaise, too. I wish I could say I'll have photos of that for you tomorrow, but there are always complications in the battle of me vs. the sewing machine. Yeesh.
Psst. Thank you for all the sweet comments yesterday on our styled bookcases. House party once this room is done and you are all invited. :)
