When it comes to furniture, I am all about hunting around yardsales, Craigslist and thrift stores for pieces. This is because I think that it’s absolutely ridiculous to pay $165 for a bedside table! (And that’s if you want a cheaply-made bedside table!) No, I’d much rather spend $5 on an ugly but well-built chair and have it reupholstered.
However, there comes a time in every frugal person’s life when they must visit an actual furniture store for more specific pieces. (Shudder!)
These specific pieces are as follows:
My Furniture Wish List
A modest-sized roll-top or secretary’s desk
(for our modest-sized study)
A chaise lounge
Though this white chaise has nice bones, I would prefer one in a fun toile print.
A small chaise sofa
(for lounging in the uppermost room)
A corner entertainment unit
(a space-saver for our cozy little den)
A trundle bed
(perfect size and functionality for our small guest bedroom)
Who knows? I just might come across one or all of these items during my wanderings through my usual haunts. And on that day I will be the happiest furniture shopper in the world!
P.S. If you love great-priced furniture and live in the Abilene area, visit Rust and Roses!
