So I was doing my daily craigslist searches in both Fairbanks and Portland (where all our stuff is stored) for treasures I could snap up to go into a moving van. I found a great posting showing 80% off furniture and other items at a discount warehouse. I called up my awesome sister and begged her to go check it out for me. So she did...driving over an hour, spending 2 hours shopping, all while toting 3 kids under 6. I love her. Can I say it enough?
The 2 nightstands I bought (and love) for my Master Bedroom from Overstock.com were a cringe-worthy $580 big ones. For me, that is a lot...even if they retailed for $699 each before. Needless, to say, after today, they're being returned.
This sale was so fantabulous, for just $200 more (delivered!) than the 2 nightstands, my sister snagged me:
2 nightstands in a similar size
1 overstuffed white tufted rectangular ottoman
1 40" round mahogany coffee table with 4 stools that tuck under it (great for kids and extra seating)
1 huge round black wall clock
and drum roll................ 2 of THESE!
Seriously, can you imagine a more perfect chair? They are large and soft (my 3 year old niece was loving them). They are going in the living room to accent my awesome sectional. They will have a table similar to this one except it's actually sidetable height (garage sale find) that will sit between them. I am so excited. The living room furniture is really coming together.
She also went and picked up a large and deep mantle for me to go over the pellet stove. It was a bargain. I just have to paint and adjust it to fit in the corner. It will create a good focal point in the living room. More on that later. I'm going to need some good advice from the crafty woodworkers.
So again, I will thank my sister for being my eyes and hands while I am unable to help myself here in Oklahoma. She is saving me money, yes...but most of all, she is saving my sanity. Love you sis!
