We have been saving our pennies to purchase a sofa for our tv room. This weekend we were finally able to buy our new white Ektorp sofa from Ikea.
It is not a bright white, but sort of a creamy white - which is exactly what I wanted.
Pottery Barn makes a sofa that looks almost identical. But the Ikea sofa was $799, while the Pottery Barn sofa is a whopping $3849.
This was the room when we moved in. It had been used as a bedroom. I thought it was going to be very dark in there.
We painted it "Moonlight White" by Behr. And boy did it lighten up the room.
Here is what we did with the room
when we first moved in.
I actually liked the room,
but it just didn't promote family togetherness.
Only two people could sit in here.
Now we have plenty of seating.
And this sofa is comfy.
I mean really comfy.
It meets or exceeds all our expectations.
I found these wonderfully warm blankets at Marshalls for $12.99 & $19.99.
The pillows and ottoman
are borrowed from the living room.
One of my "thrift store sweater" pillows.
I think I will be repainting the dresser tv stand.
I adore the white with the pine floors.
We had the sofa delivered (for $149).
It came in 4 boxes.
As with almost everything from Ikea, there is a lot of assembly required.
The fabric had to be ironed
(which took a couple of hours).
