Dumpster Discovery

Yesterday, I was outside of my apartment and something sitting on the ground near the dumpster caught my eye. I currently live with my sister and in about 4 or 5 months we will be going our separate ways and getting separate apartments. We have been looking for more furniture in preparation for this split. So, I saw 2 sofas by the dumpster and I told my sister about them. We have looked at furniture by the dumpster before and nothing has struck our fancy. Yesterday was the exception. There was a tan love seat that was in good condition but wasn't what we were looking for. The other couch was perfect. It looked practically new and had nothing wrong with it. We immediately decided it must go in our apartment. Not thinking this through before picking it up, we had some trouble getting it into our apartment. It took us about 25 minutes to get it in the door, but it made it. Today, our backs, arms, hands, and legs hurt from moving this extremely heavy couch, but it is all a sacrifice for the cause!! So here is our "free" couch that I discovered. It is fabulous and we are super excited!!
