Sale, Sale, SALE!

On my birthday (So far, 30 isn't so bad), Clint and I decided to go out to dinner.  After dinner, I talked him into letting me wander through Kate Spade, in our local mall.  After Clint watched me hug every purse in the store, we happened to walk past Crate and Barrel.  Then it happened....

First off, let me explain before I go any further.  Our couch we have now is the pits.  Our furry babies have destroyed the poor thing to the point of no return.  So, for awhile now, we have been wanting a new couch.  I am talking about 2 years.  But who can afford the darn things??  We have been in love with this sectional from West Elm for a very............. long time.  The fabric, the wooden legs, the style.  It was perfect and nothing compared to it!  Well almost perfect.  With a price tag of $2,400, this sectional was out of our range.  


Ok, back to where I was after Clint had to drag me out of Kate Spade....As I stared into Crate and Barrel, I saw the most perfect sectional ever!  

I apologize for the photographs.  They are from my phone.


I quickly ran over to sit on it!  We couldn't believe we found a match to our dream sectional! 



Ok, anyone else seeing that table in the background?  I pretty much had to walk through the rest of the store with horse blinders.

We found a sales associate and asked our millions of questions.  Then she showed us this.


!!!!  Ok, let me first off explain.  This is the Delaney Sectional at Crate and Barrel that is no longer sold there.  So, this price is for the floor sample, as is.  If we were to purchase this couch new, it would be close to $3,000.

We all examined the couch to make sure there were not rips, stains, etc.  The only problem we could find were a couple small scratches on the wood legs, but nothing that we couldn't touch up on our own.

With that, we found our new (And hopefully will last 10 years) couch!!  She will be arriving on July 9th and we cannot wait!  Hooray for Crate and Barrels awesome sale falling on my birthday!

Happy 4th of July!

Can't wait to see it in your home -
Our furbabies have torn up our couch too - but I dread buying a new one and having the same thing happen!!! What to do?

What a great deal! Peter and I spent a good portion of Saturday at Crate and Barrel. They just have so many beautiful things to look at! Your find is beautiful. I hope you enjoy it.

Oh, how I love a deal!

Our favorite places to find furniture on the cheap (aside from Craigslist, of course) is CB2, Dania Furniture, and of course the clearance sections of Crate & Barrel.
