About a week ago, my mom and stepdad came up for a visit .. which was nice, because we don't see them all that often.
Mom mentioned that they're remodeling their living room, and have been shopping for new furniture (they asked me about some of our local stores.) So .. I asked her what she was doing with her old stuff. "Well, it's probably going to the dump, to be honest. We can't find anyone that wants to take it all."
This Friday we're going down to Massachusetts to pick up our "new" sofa, two armchairs, two end tables, a coffee table, a buffet, a room-sized area rug, four sets of draperies that match the living room set, and a farmhouse-style kitchen table with benches.
My mom paid over $10k for this furniture less than 3 years ago .. and it still looks almost brand new! And all it costs us is the Uhaul rental. (And eating mom's cooking that night :LOL)
I'm all excited! Our furniture's falling apart and we were thinking of at least a new sofa .. since DH sat on the arm of ours the other day and it flat out fell off the couch :LOL
Will definitely get pics up as soon as everything's settled in - I absolutely can't wait!
