This bugs. Every day. :
Yes, it is nice to throw Greta's toys in the storage ottomans before meals (sometimes) and before guests come (as long as it isn't a surprise). But every day, this mess haunts me and bugs me and then yesterday I snapped. I swapped ottomans. The smaller storage ones went down to the family/tv room and the larger one came up to the living room.
And you know what, this bugs:
It is way too big. And our family room which was already desperately needing help--really, it is my least favorite room in the whole house-- went from being the worst room:
To being the worst and messiest room:
And now, officially the least comfortable with the too-small ottomans in place. I admit we have a problem when it comes to buying couches--we buy a lot far too often--but this secitional has GOT TO GO. We are just too tall. My 6' bod and Chris's 6'4" bod do not fit on this couch unless we have perfect posture. Who wants to have perfect posture when watching tv?? If you want to sit straight, go up to the living room and have an adult conversation on the white couch with no toys around you. We always end up slouching on the sectional and then our butts hang off, which used to be caught by the oversized ottoman, but now--there's nothing.
So yesterday, we decided--we need to sell the large ottoman (it really is just huuuggeeee) and the sectional and find something that we really love and is really comfy. Here we go again. Another couch purchase. This time, "extra deep" is the word. Suggestions are welcome--as always. :)
