  1. Love that sofa…I have the Ektorp loveseat and chair..love it! I, too, got it second hand..and was sold on it for the price, and the fact that I can clean it right away! They even threw in extra covers for both..:) I've had them for 5 years now..still love them. One of the covers is getting pretty worn, but hey..the whites ones go on sale at Ikea quite often. And it totally works..3 kids, 2 adults, 1 dog (yes, sleeps on furniture),1 cat..and still going strong. 🙂 I may buy the grey cover if it goes on sale…maybe. Still love the brightness of the white. 🙂

  2. Woooooo Hooooo Julie welcome to the white sofa club!!!!! They do wash really nicely. I have a basset hound and hubby that like to lay on my white slip covered sectional so a nice spot cleaner is a must!!!!! White is not so scary anymore!!!! Pretty sofa and great score on the price.

  3. Thanks Che! I'm really loving the white, but again, haven't had a chance to get them dirty yet, hehe. I have 2 small kids and no pets. So we should cope. Hubby is still a bit scared to sit on it through. 🙂 I admit I had my coffee in another chair this morning. I love looking it it though. 🙂

  4. I belong to the club too 🙂 I love my Ektorp furniture. I also bought all of mine second hand–which I always do. I only paid $35 for the sofa. I have had it almost 3 years now I think–and I still love it! Congrats on your purchase–it looks great!

  5. Hi Julie, nice to meet a fellow Ozzie, l love your new white sofa, and what a great saving, lovin' your choice of cushions as well…hope you got over your “bug” ok:-))

  6. No way. What a bargain Sandy! Here in Australia we have 2 stores in our state and one in the others I think so Ikea items always fetch a good price second hand as no one wants to travel hours to get to the store and you can't purchase online. And now I see how great the quality is I can totally see why they last so long too. I'm one very happy lady. 🙂 I'll be keeping an eye out for a second hand 2 seater too!

  7. Hi, yes, not too many of us Ozzies in blogland. 🙂 I was bedridden for 3 days but up and about again today, thanks for asking. 🙂 Too many bugs going around now we are going into the colder weather, its hard to avoid. Look forward to following your blog too! x Julie
