Look, we all know SUVs are gas guzzlers. But once in a while, they sure do come handy when trying to transport furniture to your house.
I rented an SUV a week ago and kept it for a few days. I found this amazing vintage drafting table at an antiques store and bought it on the spot. The funny thing is that when I asked the store's owner about the table, she immediately lowered the price. Fine, I'll buy it.
Then when I had one more question about the table, she said, "why don't you ask the seller yourself?" The seller walked in and said, "I'll drop it another $50." I was like… I said I'll buy it. So, without trying, I got a really crazy low price on this table.
And here it is all set up. I rolled out some old blueprints and threw on an old book. I love it!
Speaking of all thing, I found this handmade wooden table in a junk store in Rosemont, NJ. It was tucked away underneath a bunch of fabrics and I inquired about buying it. For $10, it was mine. It's really the perfect size for the two club chairs from JCPenney. I love the mix and match feel of new upholstery with old, dented up wood furniture. Perfect for a game of chess, checkers or Go Fish!
