My awesome find

My hubby has been asking for leather couches since we bought our house 6 years ago but we just never had it in our budget. Every once in awhile I would look at different furniture stores in their clearance section but nothing was ever "that on sale" that we could afford.

A few weeks ago I found a leather sofa and love seat on Craigslist for $400 and I emailed the seller inquiring about them. I didn't hear back so I assumed they were sold. Well two days ago she emailed me back and told us they still had the set. I sent hubby over to look at them since they were for him and he loved them! He did admit to me that he was a little unsure at first because of how cheap they were but then he saw them he bought them right away!

The story behind them...two people fall in love, get married, have a hard time, get unmarried, meet new people, new woman doesn't want couch from old relationship, old couches get new home with Klingers for $350!!!!!

The ones we sold were olive green and they were free and great couches but losing support and the wood frame was starting to pop out through the material. They got a new home with a couple who just purchased their first home.

So here is our transformation of couches!
