omg...that's a killer deal on that living room furniture Christa!!! It's SO pretty too!

 

And I think you'll be fine w/ the white leather. We have light beige leather in our living room and it's holding up great! Just keep some good spot cleaner around...just in case! :-) Most stuff wipes off just fine though.

 

funny story though...our best man was staying at our apt the night of our wedding (he had taken all the gifts back there etc.) Anyway, he had gone out w/ all the boys to a strip club after the reception, was VERY drunk, came back to the apt and crashed out on our couch. We come home to find a red XXX stamp on the arm of the sofa and Toby feeling just terrible about it! lol! Turns out that was the stamp they'd used when he was getting into the club and when he'd fallen asleep his hand was stuck in that one position all night...transferring the stamp from his hand to our sofa!!! Luckily the leather cleaner we use on the seats in our car took it off - you can't even tell it was ever there! :-) But it was pretty funny/scandalous at the time!

However, I did buy a new couch this weekend, luckily it's up on Macy's website, so here's a link.... Macy*s - Furniture - Vice Versa Modular Tufted-Leather Living Room Furniture Collection

I am super stoked because I got 5 pieces for $600 at auction!!! Retail would have been $4300 for the two corner pieces, two armless chairs & one ottoman. Hell ya!!!
That is a SWEET couch!!! Can't wait to see your pics of your new place!

OMG why have I not seen this thread in MONTHS? Am I blind?!? I love all of your homes and being able to get some design ideas. Our house is in a total state of half-done. I have a feeling it always will be.

 

But here are a few pics anyway:

 

I painted the master bedroom like 4 times before I settled on this gray color:

Umm yes have I mentioned I have a craigslist addiction. I bought this sofa on craigslist for $80 and painted the wood frame a glossy white. My husband HATES it. But I love it. (Don't worry you won't hurt my feelings if you tell me you hate it.) I am trying for a very modern gray/yellow combo in here. I need new bedding though. And a headboard.

Christa -- It's Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. I also really like Behr Wheat Bread. They are both warm, inviting grays, not cold, stony grays. And trust me, I wasted like 140 hours of my life researching this! :)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
