Hi Designwali readers! I am pumped to be guest blogging today about such a fun topic...okay, it's not fun to point out ugly things in your home, but it's fun to know that everyone has them.
I actually have two "Oh no we didn'ts".
The first one is the first sofa that my husband and I purchased together three years ago.
We eagerly skipped over to West Elm and picked this sofa out for a few reasons:
1. It was under $1000
2. It was the right colour at the time (although I HATE it now!)
3. The material was stain proof (great for kids!)
But there is one hang up - it is the most uncomfortable sofa I have ever sat on!! You may have noticed the short back cushions. Well, they are super stuffed, so you end up with no back support past your shoulder blades and you have this huge lump in your back! Whenever we have people over, I always have to apologize because they look so uncomfortable sitting there and I'm constantly rearranging the cushions to try and make it less of a brutal sitting experience.
My husband and I look at each other all the time and say, "Oh no, we didn't!", but it will just have to do for now because sofas are expensive!!
The second "Oh no, we didn't" is our TV.
It is literally a monstrosity!! My mother-in-law bought it for us when we first got engaged and we were so excited because we had the biggest TV out of our friends (it was 5 years ago and yes, we got excited over that type of thing!). The stand is atrociously ugly and the TV fits right into it, so we can't get another, more appealing-looking, stand. It also takes over our living room, which is kind of on the small side, especially with all of my son's toys in it.
However, it will just have to do until we can buy a sleek, flat screen TV.
Oh no, we didn't....again!
Thanks again to Sundeep for letting me be a part of this series. I hope you got a chuckle and you aren't alone with any uglies you may have.
