Shortly after we moved into our first house we got a call from DH's aunt offering a dining room set. It was described as very nice & expensive. We needed to go pick it up asap from a distance. So DH rented a truck & took his brother with him & came home with the ugliest table, chairs & lighted hutch. I knew at first glance that I hated them! It wasn't even real wood. It was the plastic stuff!!! I felt so bad though. So we kept them for a while then finally Dh started calling family members to see if anyone wanted them. Someone did! They came & picked it up. I prefer our tiny kitchen table & chairs, until we can afford a larger set. We did get some amazing furniture from another aunt of dh's. From now on I gota see it first! It cost us $250 to rent that truck! MY usual excuse is we don't have room! But now it is obvious that we do since we hve lots of empty space. I'd rather it empty though, then full of junk!
