Ohmygosh ohmygosh ohmygosh...
By some fluke, I found myself a yellow velvet couch!
(I didn't actually expect to find one, you see.)
I saw it on craigslist last week, and it ended up being part of an estate sale (in the most dreamy-dreamiest '60's grandparent's home!), and we ended up getting it, a matching chair, a two-tier coffee table, a working RCA record cabinet, a goat skin rug (and a couple sheepskins), and an awesome faux-woodgrain metal folding table for $160 bucks! What?! Be still my heart.
Thank you, universe, for rewarding my obsessive searching! lol. And thank you, lovely family who took care of this couch like it was a baby. It's in impeccable, brand-new shape.
It literally glows when the sun glints off of it, and we can't help but smile. :)
I knew I would love estate sales!
