It's pretty awesome... and about time. Our old one was such a peice of crap!!Posted Image
I don't like that couch as it is right now. Firstly, it appears to be leather or some leather-like simulation which sticks to the skin. The arms also appear to be very low which makes it difficult to support a pillow or two. I suggest you get a nice cover for the couch which will prevent stickage. You must make sure that the cover is tight enough so as not to become more of a nuisance due to slippage. I also suggest you move the couch so one end is flush against the wall. This will provide the necessary support for the pillows one will need to lay down comfortably while watching TV or...You may also consider purchasing some heavy duty brads and a couple of leather handles to attach to the back of the couch. I suggest you have them professionally attached as they will undoubtedly be put through the ringer when you're jammin your lady/man from the backend.

Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Does the girlfriend let you put your feet on the table? I have a hard time sitting on a couch if it doesn't recline/have an ottoman.

She would, but I don't really do it though. The table is too hard, lol. Ottoman might be nice though. I can't see spending that much money for a square box though.

That's why you need pillows on the couch. You put the pillow on the table and MAKE it into an ottoman. Rookie...

is a cushion saved for Bizzle?And I agree with Fish's assessment, the arm rails should be a little higher.

They look lower than they are from the angle.Also when you're sitting the seat goes down a bit and the arm is at a normal spot. It's all good.

Yeah... it looks better really though. It looks much lighter in the pic. It's more like chocolate brown. Pretty dark. But I dunno how to turn my flash off, lol.

no kidding.I handed over the "decorating fund" completely to the wife.Hesitant at first, since, I thought I was the only brakes on spending.Quite the contrary..she takes so long deciding and then takes back 2/3 of what she finally purchases.That fund is building up quite a reserve now.It may be the retirement account at this rate.

You know what I have found... and maybe it's just her, but...If we got shopping together... she NEVER buys anything. She always has to think about things. ForEVER.... And i'm right there saying, no, this is good, lets go ahead and get this!But... If she ever goes shopping by herself, and god forbid she goes to target, she always comes home with all kinds of stuff!! I don't get it!!

Look for a button on your camera that has a lightning bolt by it. There should be three functions as you keep pushing the button; flash, autoflash (use that one for normal picture taking), and no flash.
