New Furniture

May 6, 2010 at 8:24 pm 3 comments

Jeff and I have recently purchased a few new furniture items for our home.  First up was a new TV and TV stand.  Our old TV was a big bulky one that we’ve had for several years and felt it was time for an upgrade.  I let Jeff pick it out so he decided on a 42 inch plasma flat screen from Panasonic.  We knew that the wider TV would not look right on our old stand, and plus we wanted to get a darker stand to match the rest of our living room furniture.  We shopped around and ended up buying the stand online for under $300.  Not bad!  Here is the new set up.  Looks great!  I still can’t believe we have a TV that’s that big!

Our old TV and stand are now in the basement, which I think is perfect for guests because we also have a full bathroom in the basement.

The other item that we got was a new dining room table!  Way back when Jeff and I had our first apartment in 2005, we needed a table and didn’t have much money, so we went to Walmart and got a set with a table and 4 chairs for about $100!  It’s lasted us through a few different apartments, but now that we have our own home and more space, we wanted to get a bigger, nicer table.  Our new table and 6 chairs were delivered on Monday and I kept thinking “Wow, that table is so big!!”  I think it fits our dining room well, but I’m just so used to our small little table we had for many years.  Jeff kept saying how much he loves the new table and how cool it looks.  I’m really happy with it, and now we have space to have guests over for dinner.  (More than 2 guests I should say!)  Below is a photo of the new dining set.

We probably won’t be buying any new furniture for a while now that we got the TV, stand, and table and chairs.  But the next items we get would probably be a new couch and love seat and then a new bedroom set – bed, dresser, and nightstands.  Oh, and some type of guest bed like a futon.  Currently we just have an air mattress (or the couch) for any overnight guests.

    very nice new furniture! I’m a bit embarrassed to have guests because we haven’t bought anything new yet. We’re just waiting to finish more of the house first. I just bought a rug! I figure I’ll start with that. 🙂 It definitely takes a long time to furnish an entire house.

    Chelsea – I know how you feel! Our bedroom is all old furniture that does not match so I don’t really like to show that room off. It does take a while to furnish a whole house! I’ve been wanting to get some type of bench or swing for the patio, but not sure when we’ll get that. Right now we just have the trash can out there haha.

    Mom – you and dad will definitely be invited for dinner!
