Ektorp Sofa from Ikea

I just got the Ektorp sofa from Ikea in Blekinge white. You know the now famous $399 sofa! I must say, I was skeptical that it really all fit in the box it came in--to the point I had a gnawing feeling I left a box at the store. But low and behold, the ENTIRE sofa fits in a surprisingly small box just over a foot deep and 3 feet wide by about 8 feet long! Amazing!

All you do is open the box, screw on the legs and arms, unwrap the vacuumed packed cushions, flip up the back, and pop on the slipcovers! Each cushion as well as the frame has a separate cover--so it really looks upholstered.  Everywhere I have read says they wash very well in case of spills. The good thing, too, to remember is that a new slip cover starts at only $49! Yup, you read that right! A new white cover like this is $49! It is a very nice quality cotton denim--nice zippers and seaming and everything!

It took a bit of re-arranging to get everything situated. More photos here.

Also, look for photos from the AMAZING model train set I got to see a few weeks ago coming very soon!

Don't forget about the GIVE-A-WAY!!!
