VIctory is Sweet

If you all could see me now (all three of you who read this) you would be witnessing my victory dance in all its glory. Steve thinks I am annoying - but I just can't help myself! I sold my couch today, hooray! I had it on craigslist for a week and still hadn't had anyone come and look at my couch (I had plenty of scammers though) and I was getting sad and moping around. Today was my lucky day though. A nice young LDS couple with a little 1 year old boy and a little girl on the way are now housing my couch. I hope they love and care for it as much as I did :) I was able to sell if for $550 - needless to say I made a pretty good profit. Enough to buy a nice staple gun, which is all this cowgirl really cares about. I am already working on another chair I got for pennies at Goodwill last Saturday at "half off" day ( I may have had to elbow a few people to get to it first, but I came out victorious in the end). I am really excited about this chair, the fabric I am using is awesome. If you can't tell that I am totally obsessed with all things upholstery right now, I am. So, with great effort I shall talk about something other than the fact that I sold a couch today - I know its really not that interesting to anyone but me. Nevermind. I can't. I can't talk about anything else, so I'll just stop - talking that is.


  1. oh my gosh! i'm so excited for you! that is totally awesome. keep posting pictures of all your projects cuz i want to see!

  2. Ginger you are so talented!! The couch looked awesome! We need to get together soon!!

  3. I want to see pictures of your projects too!

  4. Andrew bought this hideous couch and two chairs before we bought our house.... the chairs are like lime green and the couch is totally sixties... I am trying to talk andrew into getting rid of them so i can get a new sectional...maybe you can redo them:) can you do pillows too? I would be interested in paying you to do our couch, (not the hideous one andrew bought):)

    1. Mandy,
      I would love to redo your chairs - however, since I have not done all types of furniture I am selective about what projects I will take on for other people. I would hate to experiment on your stuff :) Send me a picture of the furniture you want redone and I will let you know if it is something I can handle. my email is Oh, and I can do pillows too, for sure.

  5. You probably would have sold it sooner if you didn't have such a goofy looking guy laying across it. Who picks these models anyway;)
