Good morning everyone!
Do you want to know our biggest blooper when buying our own furniture. It happened 5 years ago. We finally had enough money to buy our first ever sala set. A few months before that we moved out of our parents house and rented our first apartment for the very first time. It was small but it was big enough for my husband, myself, and Z who was only two years old then. We had purchased a lot of our stuff the day we moved – mostly necessary stuff like ref, bed, table, gas range – but we had to wait until we saved enough money to buy our first ever sofa.
So needless to say I was very excited the day we went sofa shopping. We looked and looked until we found one that we liked that also fits our budget. We paid cash for it, went home and waited eagerly for the delivery. We didn’t wait long before the delivery van came by with our precious sofa.
Unfortunately, there was an unexpected surprise that made us regret our purchase almost instantly. We realized this the moment they tried to fit the sala set in our small living room.
The sofa we bought was too big!
It was a disaster! I was so upset I wanted to cry when I saw the sofa sticking out and blocking one of our doors because it was way too long. I wanted to tell the delivery men to carry the furniture back to their van but was too shocked to say a word. (Plus I didn’t know if this was even possible at the time. I was so sure they’ll reprimand us for our mistake. hehe)
So for the next months we lived with our “large” purchase. I tried hard to make it fit our place by rearranging it almost every week (Yes, I became obsessed. haha!) When we finally moved to a bigger apartment I finally breathed a sigh of relief.
So the lesson that we learned was:
Don’t forget to use the tape measure when buying your furniture.
And now I have good news for you.
We’re having a Sofa Sale!!!
