I probably should be embarrassed to admit this but I’m not. You know how much I detest shopping and shopping for furniture rates right up there with shopping for a car. I’d about rather do anything.
Through the years, we’ve ended up with less and less furniture. Sometimes it got damaged in moving, sometimes it just didn’t have a place in the next house. Sometimes it just got worn out and was donated or, in one case, it was so bad, it went to the dump.
Now we find ourselves with a house that needs a whole lot more furniture than we’re bringing and with the virus, I figured we’d get by with the bare minimum and then when it’s safer, we’d go out shopping for funiture.
The sellers asked if we would be interested in any of their furniture that didn’t go with their new house. I had already fallen in love with the master bedroom furniture but figured even used, it was going to be beyond our budget. It kinda was but Vince likes it too so .. we got that too.
They had just purchased a new washer/dryer two months before finding their new dream home so they asked if we were interested in that. I said fine . . so long as it isn’t a front load. It isn’t. There are four bedrooms there. We are going to keep three of them furnished as bedrooms. I think we haven’t come to any decision yet on the fourth bedroom.
This will be Addie’s room so I bought the furniture that’s in there. There was another bed but it was a sleigh bed with a footboard and I knew that would be harder for her to make her bed and she said she doesn’t like footboards “because if you’re jumping on the bed, they can be dangerous!” I think we’ll have a discussion about that later.
I wanted to keep the basement bedroom furnished so we can sleep down there when there’s a storm or use that as a guest room since there’s a bathroom there and guests would have a little privacy so we bought that.
We bought the dining table which has two leaves and will easily sit 8 and it has 8 chairs and the barstools in the kitchen match the chairs.
There are two Lazy Boy recliners in the “sitting room” that is really a dining room and they haven’t been used much so we bought those.
Heck . . at the rate we’re going, we may not even need movers! 🙂
