I had thought to put our small leather sofa on ebay but then I remembered a good friend had said her son was looking for some furniture for a new flat. He came and picked it up this morning.
He's super pleased, we've got some money in the coffers, more space and the chair is perfect under the standard lamp for reading and knitting.
Needless to say because I moved the armchair out of our bedroom I've moved a lot of things around in there too. It's all looking fresh and different and not a penny spent.
