Colour my world
In the oh-so-brief amount of time I've been trawling eBay for this blog, there's a key word that I've very quickly learnt can mean fugly couch gold. That word? Custom, of course.
You're setting yourself up for re-sale failure when you go the custom route, obviously. Having identified that your tastes are so specific that you need to get your couch made just for you will pretty much mean the market for people wanting something similar is not going to be that broad.
And then you end up with something like this setting...
There's no mention in the ad about this having come off the set of a failed children's television show, and that's the only place I can think of that this would be at home.
You could see a presenter sitting on this chair and being all bubbly and bright.
As for me, it kinda just gives me a headache. And that's coming from a girl whose dream job would be hosting Sesame Street. No jokes, that's a fact. I even went to my brother's girlfriend's 21st "Dream Job" theme party dressed as a Sesame Street host. Mr Snuffleupagus and I are good mates.
