Renovation Diary: The Inspiration for Laura's Backyard Reno

So, I am actually in the exact same boat. I just bought a MCM sectional, and am planning on reupholstering/refinishing it because it is a little beat up (but hey, I will take the $150 price tag any day).

I'm wondering if you could share your source for new cushions! I have plans for making my own cushion covers, but I would like to get some nicer cushions for it first. Thanks, and good luck with your new sofa!

I can't wait until I graduate from graduate school and really get to choose my own place to live. But I move so often that I've got #5 down to a science. Everything, including my bike, fits into my compact car without too much trouble.

I can't help but ask, does anyone know the name of the style of chair in the picture? It looks so light and open, but comfortable at the same time...

Sell furniture. You are lucky in that New York has a great craigslist market, where you can actually re-coop costs. If you have some time before moving, start noticing/tracking what you use and what you don't, and try to only keep what you actually use. At least that's been my strategy.... Good luck though! Remember that the city is part of your living space, so live in it!

I also really appreciate the "what my friends say", as that's pretty much what my friends say to my crappy grad student apartment too. :)
