My parents have TWO storage sheds full of furniture, OLD furniture from when they went from a small house to a BIG house and then back to the small house again THEN they moved to Denver and bought pretty much all new furniture @@ Yes its ridiculous... But now that we are gonna be getting a NEW house (literately NEW never been lived in before) my mom seems to think that we want all her old crap! I'm like NO NO NO! She has an "antique" bedroom set that she insists she's been saving for my oldest dd (gonna be 10 this year). Really, you want a 10yo to have an ANTIQUE set? why, so she can ruin it?! Plus its not even the whole set, she gave the bed away to my cousin several years ago, so its just the big bulky dresser, a 2 piece tall 'secretary' desk and chair, plus a night stand. I agree they are beautiful and do look antique and they have sentimental value because they belonged to my great Aunt Ida, but that's all the more reason I don't want my dd to destroy them! Sigh... not to mention the 2 dining tables she wants me to pick from, although neither have enough matching chairs! But the things that we DO need, like new beds and a new couch, she doesn't have :P I know I'm just being picky but honestly I Want (and my dh VEHEMENTLY agrees) to pick NEW stuff that WE actually Like for our new house, we're the ones who have to live with it!Answer Question
