So, we moved forward with the whole process and went from this....
I insisted upon dark cabinets.
This couch gave us weeks of grief and stress. Over Christmas, we walked into Ashley Furniture, found it, and it was love at first sight! We found it when we got home and were ready to purchase, but measured it and thought it would be too big for our room. We looked and looked and couldn't find anything we liked as much, that was as comfortable, or that was as good of a deal. So, we risked it. We kept the order and had it delivered. AND...it fit! All the time spent shopping for something else was almost a waste, except that it confirmted to me how much I love my couch!
We had bought a different entertainment center, but then I found this, and had to return it and get this instead! It was so much more classy and beautiful, and I love it everytime I look at it.
