Give me [a] back [to] my couch!

We have a dream... to rearrange our media room so that the couch is not against the wall. The problem? It's this sofa, and the cushions do fall off after a few minutes of relaxed sitting, despite being weighted. We considered putting a heavy piece of furniture behind it, but that's not ideal as it takes up all the wonderful space we are trying to get back. Can you help us add a back to our couch?

Buying quality furniture at a lower price

I'm in need of new furniture and I'm wondering if I can buy on-line cheaper than the local furniture store prices. I'm looking at manufacturers like Hickory Chair, Baker, Henredon.

advice about removing superglue

I inadvertently left an open vial of super glue on top of my antique desk, and then leaned on it with my elbow. Now it's stuck on with a rock-hard ring that looks like a satellite view of a mountain range, a centimeter wide at its base and peaks of a millimeter or so. I've tried applying nail polish remover with little success: the glue is just too thick. I hesitate to scrape at it with a knife because doing so will trash the finish and perhaps gouge the wood, but I'm thinking that may be my only option. Any advice?

Fully Furnished

I need to furnish a house for myself, my wife and two small kids. We have zero furniture right now. We will only be in this house for a year until we eventually buy a house. Without knowing the space that we will eventually end up in, I am not sure if I should make big investments in couches, entertainment centers, etc. I need to do this as quickly as possible. Should I buy what I really want or should I just buy cheap stuff for now? Either way, what's the easiest way to do this without running around like a mad man? I am going to have to pull this off without any help. Should I just walk into Ikea with a shopping list? Can I have all of this stuff delivered? We are in Austin if it matters.
