I bought more furniture.
2 side tables, 4 chairs, and a headboard and footboard to be exact.
How does it all fit in the house you ask? Well, I sell some and move others.
But! In my defense, we did need the 4 dining chairs even though those were not what I was initially buying furniture for.
The company Antique or Unique is a online company who purchases antique and vintage wood furniture from individual parties and sells it online. This way he keeps his overhead low.
Which is exactly why I follow him on Facebook. So, on Saturday I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and I found this:
It was $50 and I had to have it. I asked Robert and he said yes so we drove 45 minutes one way.
It was the 1940’s mahogany with the same drawer pull as my coffee table and everything else in my house.
I had decided it would replace the leather insert side table in the living room.
While I was looking at the drop-leaf table I saw this one right near it for $45.
And it matched even better. So I decided to get both and Robert would have the drop-leaf table as his new nightstand.
I told Robert on the drive there I could only get 2 things which is one more than we originally were going to the warehouse for. Unless we find dining chairs, then I could get 4 of those also.
So as we were checking out. I saw the chairs in the back and asked how much each one was. I was thinking also $30 or $40. BUT! He said all of his chairs were $15 each. I excused myself and went over to them.
We got 4.
They don’t have any cushion or upholstery (post coming later) so we are going to get fabric soon.
I ended up with exactly what Robert and I agreed on me being allowed to get. Though really, I would have gotten more if I saw more things I liked.
While we were there I saw a twin mahogany headboard and footboard for $125. Which I wanted to replace the brass one I had previously. (Free with the bed.)
Not very pretty since everything else I have is mahogany. But I had actually seen the exact same one (actually there were 2) at a thrift store where I live for $50. So the next day I went over and promptly bought it.
I think it looks beautiful. Full twin bed post coming later.
I love everything. All of it for $250 including the upholstery fabric and supplies. 🙂
