Optimistic er, futile furniture shopping continues...
I must be a glutton for punishment. I should take my furniture defeats as a sign from God telling me to throw some pillows on the floor and be done with it. But no, I still want some $%#ing furniture so I continue the hunt.
I thought I had found an option on Craigslist this weekend but when I got some follow photos, the coffee table I thought might work was ugly as sin. Oh well.
Then I found the site of an antique dealer, Jean Marcfray that has the most beautiful pieces.
Prices upon request. Silly me, I requested and nearly fell out of my chair when I learned the prices. Gasp. Moving on.
I guess Ill use my old coffee table for a while longer. I had plan on demoting it to the basement man room but it has a stay of execution for now. Its not what I want but I don't have the energy to keep looking right now.
But I still have a whole house outside of the living room to furnish so I'm turning a little bit of attention to the bedroom. I've given up the dream of having the perfect upholstered antiqued headboard and moved on to more realistic aspirations like buying a bed that is mass manufactured (since that has been so easy for me thus far!). Ive found two options. One I prefer but the other is half the price. Without giving too much away, what do you think?
Hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend. The weather in the area was just amazing. I spent the entire three days doing nothing much and it was great. And of course I made a visit to the telectroscope I was talking up earlier in the week. OK, it was a little bit lame because there were so many other people there but its still very fun.
