The upholstery isn't exactly my first choice, but oh well. It fits perfectly into the space beside the closet, which was my primary concern - it's not too deep and not too wide. Anyone ever re-upholster their furniture? Maybe I should look into it. The piece has a really nice design, it's just too bad it's not green velvet or something. I wish I was good at sewing. Maybe I could become good at sewing, or at least good at creating a green velvet slip cover.
I played with the furniture arrangement in my apartment for a while, and I think it feels better in here now. The big room is more cozy; I never felt comfortable in there before, but now things feel much better.
Later in the afternoon I took the L downtown to buy some more canvases. On my way back I got off at the Red line Grand stop to pick up some things at the grocery store. Unfortunately, it was on fire, so I had to go elsewhere.
