My “New” Chesterfield Sofa

It’s been a few days since I’ve posted… I am aware, sorry not sorry ok maybe a little sorry. Anyway, it’s not my fault that I found the coolest most perfectest Chesterfield sofa on craigslist that is stunning and NOW MINE! I’ve been on the lookout for a sofa for a while, because my current roommate is moving out soon and she brought all of the couches with her.

Anyway, this couch is stunning. It’s a black Chesterfield sofa. In layman terms, it’s tufted (like, buttons that are pushed into the couch) and has rounded ‘arms’.  It’s leatherette, which I thought was great, considering it’s extremely environmentally inefficient (and sad for the cows) to use leather for such things… I’ll be the first to say that I do sometimes get leather products, but I try to make sure I buy them secondhand. Buying secondhand is a great way to be environmentally friendly. We have enough crap already produced in the world.  The less products we produce, the less pressure we put on the environment. Simple. We use SO MUCH water, pesticides and fossil fuels just to produce 1 article of clothing. Just to make 1 pair of jeans, it takes 1,800 gallons of water. Crazy, right? So don’t be a snob to Goodwill or Craigslist. They’re good for you!

Back to the couch. It’s a little worn out on the seats, but what can you do? Hide it with pillows. Isn’t that why people have pillows on their couch anyway?

This couch is integral as the first step to transform my little apartment from blah to aha!  I’m too exhausted to go through the dramas I went through to get this couch, but maybe I’ll say them later.

Here’s an overly-glorified (and fake-looking) stock photo of what I got.

With this 4th couch in our living area, we literally look like we live in a sofa showcase room. Not for long!

In other news, JoAnn(s) is having a huge sale on everything. Literally, I think the majority of the store is 40-70% off until June 15th. Check it out! I got these new pots, each under 10 dollars (don’t mind the crappy picture quality!) I especially like the last pot shown:

Does anyone know the name of the above left plant? I can’t remember the name, and when I bought it, it only said that it was a “houseplant.”IMG_2439For this little pineapple, I planted an Aloe Vera hybrid. It’s so thorny and sassy. I love it.

Next post is about the vermicompost, I promise! I know y’all have been waiting for it… right?
