I finally got a dining room table today. Isn't that thrilling? It used to be that I'd pair the word "thrilling" with things like college acceptance letters and prom (actually not really prom, prom sucked donkey balls) but now I get my highs off new furniture. Another sure sign that time is passing and I am getting Old (says the 25 year old).
Anyway, I didn't even buy it. I got it from a friend (Thanks, Cindy!) so I guess I'm still in college mode if I'm just "getting" furniture and not "buying" furniture. (Not to be ungrateful, the table is practically brand new, Thanks Cindy!!).
I think the furniture you have is a pretty good estimation of how grown up you are.
Most of the furniture I have is from Target. My first non-Target piece of furniture I bought was a dresser, acquired less than 2 months ago. Oh, I thought I made a big step with that one. And yet my mattress and boxspring sit on the floor.
What would I furnish my dream house with? Something along the lines of Ethan Allen, Restoration Hardware, and Thomasville. Is it so wrong to like such generic and commercial brands? If so, I'll try and make it up with quirky accent pieces collected from around the world. ('Cause if I'm shopping at Ethan Allen, apparently I have a private jet) They will make excellent conversation pieces when you come and visit.
I will invite you to Sunday brunch and we will sit on my veranda (hoooo, now I have a veranda) and we'll chat about how I want to remodel the kitchen and you will give me the number to "your guy".
Oh man, my stomach kind of turns over on itself thinking that my life ends up like that.
