Of course I thought he was just saying that to get a rise out of me so I just kept washing dishes - MISTAKE! - When I heard the saw running I didn't think anything of it until I hear a thump and DH says hey the recliners still work and now it's a sectional! Of course Charli gets on the other one and says it works too and they are all joking about just putting it back together when the new floor is done. They can just shove all 3 pieces together and still use the recliners. So, needless to say it went to the burn pile with the old carpeting and now I have to find another couch too! Thankfully Eric and I had moved the other sofa out to the addition already or I'm afraid I wouldn't have any living room furniture left because I had already told him the end tables were to go to the burn pile because they served no purpose other than dust collectors...I guess we will have to do some shopping and not in the baby department this time!
DH did that with our old couch also....he didn't want to pay $60.00 to have it hauled away so he cut it up, threw the fabric and stuffing away and burned all the wood. We kept one of the cushions for Cocoa (my chocolate lab) because she loved the couch.....of course she now loves the new one too.
