Hula checks out the pile of boxes. I think this is the loveseat section and the corner seat, and the end armrests.
Here we have another box, this time with the sofa section in it. Check out Chris' new computer, hanging out on the dining room table. Eventually it will have a home in the office. Ya know, once the floor in there is finished and it's painted and everything.
Chris was out mountain biking, so I started sorting the seat cushions.
I arranged the biggest sections in their eventual layout.
And then tried to figure out which covers go with which cushions.
Then I was able to put the covers on the base sections before Chris got back. He helped me set the sofa and loveseat in place. They hook onto the corner seat. It's pretty clever, and I am once again impressed with Ikea's furniture engineers.
Chris puts the last cover on the last cushion.
And ceremoniously lays it in place!
The sofa is perfect for Chris to stretch out in one direction, and for me to take the other. It will be comfy.
Now we just have all of these boxes to deal with! Chris has been cutting them up and stuffing them in the recycling bin. It's slow, but they're all out of the garage now I think.
Ahhhh, the finished couch. Let us bask in its dark gray, non-scratching-post texture, expansive sofa-ness. Also I love my coffee table! Maybe it can stay black.
