This is a post to get myself some free furniture.
|IKEA TV stand circa 2006, U of M dorm room|
Sure, I have bedroom furniture, but I will not be taking it with me when I move - I have a twin-sized bed and some random shelves and dressers that I've had since I was 7 or 8 and lived in Illinois. They are heavy too, and so I will need at least one new dresser for my new place.
So far on my "to buy" list is:
- Double or queen-sized mattress
- Kitchen table and four chairs
- TV stand (because apparently the one item that is mine I can't take with me ... it's been taken hostage by my parents. And their VCR.)
- 1 or 2 couches
- And probably a few little things, like a nightstand and some lamps, especially if my new apartment doesn't have overhead lighting
One item on the Gardner-White site that looks really nice is the Tahoe Black Leather Reclining Sofa, $588 on sale:
I've been told that leather sofas are the easiest to clean, rather than cloth, so if I was the grand prize $1000 Gardner-White gift card winner, one of the first things I would buy would be a leather sofa. This one looks super comfortable and I love reclining chairs/sofas - they're always so nice to sit in.
Gardner-White, please pick me to be your $1000 grand prize winner! I would use the money wisely and it would definitely be nice to not have to worry about all of the furniture expenses that I am preparing to have.
