I think I've mentioned a couple times here on this blog that my lovely husband might struggle a tiny bit in the gifting department. It's one of the main reasons we go on vacations for both our birthdays and anniversary. The other reason being that he's impossible to buy for -- double whammy. So I feel like I need to brag on him just a bit after this Christmas. Friends, he hit it out of the park.
Meet my new couch!
Leather and tufted with big roll arms? Yummy.
The couch actually has a back story. Chris' hobby is restoring vintage cars. And to do this, he's often out buying/trading car parts with guys he meets at various events. Sometimes I tag along. I was doing just that about a year and a half ago when we were walking through this one guy's basement as we made our way back to the room where he stores his car parts and we walked by this amazing couch. Clearly not being used and exactly the couch I would pick out if I could pick out any couch. I have no idea why I didn't mention it then, but I did mention it later and we've talked a couple times about calling the guy and seeing if he'd be willing to sell it. But of course, the living room isn't really a priority - or even on the list! - so nothing ever came of it. Until Chris surprised me with for Christmas!
He hid it in the garage and arrange a really awesome scavenger hunt for me to find it! It was the sweetest and I was so surprised. Maybe his gift giving skills are coming around?
I think you can tell in the photos, but this couch is a little dry with some surface scratches. And, one tuft has popped out. Other than that it's in perfect shape! I'm so excited to show you when we move it into the living room. And I'm excited to share with you how we plan to restore/condition it so it glows like new!
Another gift I'm really excited about?
Yep, my mom read my wish list. Good job mom! :)
Friends, what was one of your favorites gifts this year?
