Our "new" couch

My parents gave Chris and I an old couch of theirs. It was well loved, especially by my dog Missy, and the rabbit Bambi. Time to get it cleaned!

I bought some Saddle Soap from the hardware store and it worked out great. You can really see the difference between the right cushion and the middle section. Saddle soap is easy on my lungs. I didn't have to take several breaks to get fresh air.

I'm afraid the seat cushions are beyond redemption. The grain leather has started to flake off from 7 years of use. I just hide it with a quilt and all is well. :)

My parents also gave me the stonework coffee table. It's great for stacking my books and drinks as I relax on the couch to read.

I suppose it'll also be good for watching movies too, but I don't think I've turned on the TV once since I got home! :)

The couch looks great with the quilt on it. I love quilts on couches.

Its always nice to have a quilt to snuggle in on the couch, and this one is built in. Its amazing the difference between the cleaned and uncleaned cushion in the picture.
