Old Dresser Departure
I loved the dresser as a kid because of the cubby hole in the front. It used to have a door that turned it into a sort of treasure chest in my eyes.
My first pet tortoise used to live under the dresser. I wonder if it will miss me.

New Dresser Arrived
The new dresser arrived this morning. The bed comes in april but they gave us a metal frame to use in the meantime. Its thr first time since I was a child that my matress wasn't just on the floor.
The mirror on the new dresser is awesome. I kind of wish we got the nightstand too but it was just too damn expensive.

We got it at some fly by night antique shop next to the laundromat on elmwood avenue right after you cross the Kenmore ave line. I remember that it was $125 and that we gave the guy $100 and told him we would bring back the other $25. I am pretty sure that we never did because when we came back like a week later they were closed forever. I remember it seemed so expensive, like we were being totally crazy spending $125 on a couch. It was in relatively good condition then although I think it had already last about 10-20 years since its creation.
Somewhere along the way we also got my grandmother's old couch which was worn out by the tenants that lived there after her. The fabric is all ripped and its not a good lounging couch.
So we decided to use some of our tax return money to get some couches that will last, not smell like chemicals, be hypo-alllergenic, and allow you to sit up straight. I was sold on leather because it doesn't create so much dust like cloth couches.
We shopped around and went to Value City (crap), FWS (ok), Rosa's (ok) and Raymour and Flanigan's (awesome), Our saleswoman at Raymore Laurie Guerra was really helpful, I would definately recommend her. We sat on every couch in the store, it took us two days between the stores. In the end we liked the first couch we decided on like 15 minutes into the first day of couch shopping. Same with everything in my life e.g. the house, the car. Its just after the matress fiasco I decided to go ahead and make sure this time.
Along the way we saw some crazy couches. Including the one with the cupholder form my previosu journal (e:paul,47910)
A fully denim couch by Cindy Crawford?
The sex room couch?
And this really big comfy, recliner couch that i wanted but that (e:matthew) couldn't stand the look of. It was pretty comfy and fully reclined almost like a bed.
In the end the two we chose were pretty contemporary but classy italian leather with hardwood interior couches. They had some eco friendly hypoallergenic stuffing as well which made me happy.
Instead of getting a couch and a loveseat, we got two couches because we are tall and it allows two people to lie down. Did you know that buying an additional couch is only $30 more than the loceseet. That seems like such a deal when you think of all the extra fabric and materials. This was the model, called "The Morgan Leather Sofa"
Here is the glam shot of it from their site.
FWS had a couch that was cheaper but they didn't have the same service plan and I didn't know what the stuffing or frame was made of compared to the raymour one. This was especially important to me after the mattress fiasco from last year. Also the leather was thinner. However, the salesguy at FWS had a really nice butt.
The other thing FWS didn't have was the 5 year warranty plan that Raymour and Flanigan's does. Seriously, it covers everything from scratches and tears to cigarette burns fully for five years. How could you turn that down.
