It’s official – my husband and I are empty nesters! My daughter moved out in March and this past Saturday we took my son and daughter-in-law to Central Michigan University were they’ll both be working on master’s degrees. Granted, they’ll return home on school breaks (at least I HOPE they will!) – but, for the most part, my chickadees have all flown the coop!
I’d describe the way I feel as bittersweet. I’ve cherished “doing life” with my adult children – especially have loved living with my daughter-in-law – but I’m happy for them and where they’re headed and all the excitement/challenges/adventures which await them on their journey.
And one of the coolest parts? I know an EXCELLENT used furniture store where they’ve been able to purchase some fantastic furniture for their apartments! Haha!
Let’s take a look at SOME of the current inventory at that excellent used furniture store! Remember the Furniture Gallery is another online source for viewing what’s in the store.
gorgeous two piece brown velour-like upholstered sectional priced $245
buttery tan leather sofa – seat cushions are fairly worn/distressed – priced $175
fabulous Interior Crafts leather chair – also a buttery tan color – in excellent condition for $325

this gorgeous Pottery Barn outdoor table (though nice enough to use indoors) measures 39 3/4” x 7’4” and looks like it was never used! There’s a hole for an umbrella and, I believe, is made from eucalyptus wood (a lot of Pottery Barn’s outdoor furniture is – as well as mahogany).
