I mentioned before that I love free things, especially free furniture. It doesn't phase Jed to just ask strangers what there plans are for discarded furniture in backyards and garages; and the majority of the time people are glad to have him haul it away.
I was counting all the different pieces of furniture in our house and also pieces we have sold and given away and it totaled to about 12; 2 dressers, 2 dinning tables (one with 6 chairs), 3 entertainment centers, 2 night stands, 1 coffee table, 1 headboard, and 1 lounge chair (we also have gotten lamps and a bike, but they were way ugly so I don't count them). We've made about $400 dollars reselling free furniture, and furnished about half our house. That's why I love FREE stuff!
This is our newest free item that Jed picked up from a sweet old lady. She also told him that she has a matching dresser that she wants to give us! (but that probably won't happen, since we don't know her name)
Jenny and I have a small obsession with mid century modern furniture and this is one of the first pieces that I own now. It is somewhat worn out in places but I really love the natural wood color and couldn't bare to paint it. We used some Old English polish on it and now it looks so much better.
