First New Furniture

Today, we stopped at the thrift store and we were just going to LOOK at the furniture section. It would be nice if there were bunk beds, but we were not holding our breaths.

 


Well, there were no bunk beds, but there was the BEAUTIFUL and BIG table outside. It just had not so nice looking chairs with it, but then, maybe I could just buy the table. I asked the guy how much it would be and he started out at $100, but went down to $80 pretty fast. Which means that either *I* am a master negotiator, or it means that they wanted to get rid of this space eating ugly table. BUT! I had to take the chairs too, they were not willing to sell the table without the chairs.

 


It took me all of five minutes one minute twenty seconds to decide that I could totally live with the chairs after all, and I could either use them somewhere else in the house, or use my current benches somewhere else. I mean, this was The First Furniture for my new house, I couldn't let it slip through my hands just because of getting six extra chairs, could I?

 


The thrift store people were nice enough to deliver the table, since my van was still in the garage, and now I am the proud owner of a brand new old table. I just have to find a house to go with it. We had Chinese take out to help us baptize the table.

Wait, are those the chairs? I actually prefer the chairs to the table from what I can see.

Haha, meepy.

The chairs have really grown on me, and I like them in hindsight. Can that count?
