Favorite Finds: Tosha's Couch

I'm introducing a new series called Favorite Finds! I'm asking friends, neighbors, and fellow bloggers to send me a photo of their favorite second-hand find and answer a few questions about the item!

Our first Favorite Find is my neighbor Tosha's vintage couch!

Tosha says:
Here is my amazing retro green couch. The first time I laid eyes on it I knew I had to have it!

The thrift store it came from is TINY so the lady said she would let me have it for $25 just so they could make room for more stuff. Getting it home was a challenge since my husband was at work. I had to get it on my own and drive it back from Gallatin to Nashville on secondary streets since I was too scared to get on the highway with it.

It was in pretty good shape as far as being clean so I just vacuumed it out really well and spot cleaned the back with soap foam and threw the cushion covers in the wash. Since I have two kids and pets, I knew it would need to be washable so I just stuck them in and crossed my fingers but it worked.

My husband loved it when I sent him the picture and since we could sell our other couch for $35, the whole trip was paid for and the couch was free. :)

Now I just need to repaint my living room since it matches my wall color exactly!

Thank you, Tosha, for sharing your Favorite Find!

If you would like to be considered for Favorite Finds, email me a photo of the item you would choose as your Favorite Find and a little bit about it. I'll write you back with some questions to answer and then we'll get you set up! I have several in store for you guys already so I may not be able to feature every submission that comes in but I would love to see what you guys have!

PS- HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDY!! Today is my husband's 32nd birthday and we're going out to his favorite restaurant to celebrate. Over the weekend, we picked him up a new desk and office chair for his birthday present! Leave some love for my awesome bearded huzz in the comments! ;-D
