Sofa and Rocking Chair For Only $70.00

We have been needing a sofa for a long time since all we had was a beat up old raggedy love seat, and I have been wanting my own rocker or recliner chair so I could have something comfortable to sit in while I'm knitting.

Today we went shopping for furniture. We weren't looking for furniture that matched. We wanted something REALLY CHEAP, but it had to be comfortable. We found a sleeper sofa and a rocker for just pennies less than 70 bucks.

Here is the sofa we got for only $49.88 dollars. The sleeper frame is broken but that's ok. It could be fixed if we really needed it to be fixed. The important thing is that we got a very good sofa in great condition really cheap.

This is my new knitting chair. It rocks and swivels side to side so I now have a comfortable place to sit and watch tv while I'm knitting or surfing the web on my laptop. It is in really great condition. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't recline but for less than $15.00 I'm not complaining.

Tomorrow I'm going out shopping for a round coffee table and a colorful area rug.

Oh yeah, I'm still working on the prayer shawl and it's coming along great so far. Maybe I'll post a picture of it tomorrow.

All ya need is some slip covers and you are set. Make em or buy em...or hell, even big white sheets looks pretty cool.
It gives it that breezy beach look.

I vote for white slip covers or sheets because with 3 little dogs and kids who like to eat on the couch, they bleach up super nice and clean and smell great.
I love the smell of bleached linens.
Weird? maybe....
Good find!

I had thought about getting slip covers, but I kinda like the difference in the two pieces of furniture. I think I may try to find an area rug to put down on the floor to tie the two pieces together and then if that doesn't work I'll get a slip cover for the chair.

What we really need is a new coffee table. The one we have now is really really old. It's a "hand-me-down" table I got from my parents a few years ago that they had for many many years. It is really ugly which is why it has the beach towel on it lol.
