Hubs and I have been talking for months about turning our "office" into a "lounge." Our computer is a laptop, so we don't really need the huge desk that's currently in there, and we thought it would be nice to have another place to hang out besides the living room. Maybe put a couple club chairs and our stereo in, some new lighting, etc. One reason we haven't yet is because the "office" was eventually meant to be the "baby's room."
Today I was awoken (again) by our next-door neighbors having a yard sale. (Turns out they're moving.) When hubs left for work he noticed they were selling a sofa set, and thought we could use the love seat in our "lounge." Awesome. I went over and bought it for $20, it'll work nicely with a slip cover, and it's really comfy. They tried to sell me the sofa too, for another $20; I told them we don't have room but would ask hubs. Of course, hubs wants it for when the garage is all set up to be his "man cave." (AKA: more room to hang out, but with all his boy stuff that I don't want in the house.) Great. The garage still has a looong way to go before that happens, so I guess I'll have a sofa in there along with everything else taking up space that could be used for my car. Ya know, the whole purpose of having a garage and all that.
*Sigh* Oh well, at least I'll have a lounge! And another room to decorate the way I want. Maybe I'll even wallpaper ;)
