Winter Clean Up

It’s been a productive weekend here at Casa (Mis)Happenings!  We cleaned, we lounged, we played my new lego movie video game, we went to Costco…..typical weekend around here really!  Just so everyone knows…..I suck at video games, but I totally beat The Engineer at my new lego game!!  Don’t tell him I told you that though…. 🙂

It’s the end of an era as I parted ways with my faux leather, gold couch that Momma and Dad painted for first college apartment.  I bought it for $10 off a sidewalk sale, and they proceeded to put probably $50 worth of primer, paint, and metallic gold glaze on it!  We’ve had a good run, but there just wasn’t really room in the house for two couches.  Tomorrow after work it will be off to it’s new home and 3 new doggie loungers!  Hopefully it will keep the 3 doggies and their Momma as comfy as it kept me for several years!

Side note……apparently gold couches are a popular item on the Facebook Marketplace.  I had a ton of interested buyers….way more than I expected honestly.

Gold, squishy, and puppy cuddle approved!

In order to sell the couch…I had to post pictures.  To get pictures….I had to clean 3 years worth of assorted stuff off of it.  It was occupying a prime spot upstairs in the loft, so it had become a storage bench of plenty of junk.  The biggest item was the curtains that I removed from the master bedroom when I repainted.  They had just been draped over the back of my poor couch for years.  So to start off the weekend, the couch got cleaned, and the curtains were hung in the spare bedroom upstairs!

They aren’t the best, but they aren’t the worst and fit nicely with the grey/blue theme I want to eventually do in the guest room.  I have really grand plans, but one thing at a time I suppose!

To cap off the weekend we cleaned the garage, moved the couch into the cleaned out section of the garage….couches and stairs….ughs…..and I started some new chalk painting projects!  I’ll be sure to share pictures when they are done.  It’s a bit cold out in the garage this time of year so I didn’t get past the initial painting phase.  They always look weird to me when they are just flat paint.  Needs some distressing and some waxing and they will be good to go!  Now it’s time for some homemade nachos, and Mexican mule, and a movie with The Engineer and Scout-a-Roo!
