FHW (The CLW Substitute): CHAIRS!

I DID IT!  I FOUND CHAIRS TO GO WITH MY CRAIGSLIST TABLE!

But first…

Did you know that chairs are a surprisingly expensive piece of furniture?  Just go to any website for any furniture store you know of (for us, maybe Jeromes or Mor furniture) and just look at the prices of their chairs!  You can’t find one cheaper than like $50 (Even the nicest IKEA chair is about $70)!!!!  Well, I did, and it was used, and I don’t care.  It was CHEAP!  After scouring craigslist and coming up short on responses from sellers, I went to this Model Home Outlet called Furniture Heaven, and looked around.  They sell new and used furniture (i.e. furniture that was rented or used in model homes).  Granted, some of their new furniture is still expensive as balls (or maybe I am also just really cheap).  Anyways, realizing that some of their stuff isn’t on the floor, I showed them the ideal chairs from their website and they showed me a picture of chairs that were $30 a piece (we have a winner!) and we bought them!  Shawn picked them up today and sent me this wonderous picture.  TADAAA!

OUR FINISHED DINING SET

So to total it up:

6 FH chairs (30/chair + tax = 198)

1 CL table = 55

Grand Total: $253 (vs like $500+)

YAYYYY!!!!  FHW = Furniture Heaven Win.  We’ll probably poke around there when we need more furniture.

On a side note – we discovered Furniture Heaven from a radio ad.  Sometimes, they are actually useful ads, who knew?!
