I inherited a lovely Drexel dining room set from my parents. After 10 years in storage, "it" was in poor condition.
|My Parent's Dining Room|
1.We are never moving. I will never have the space to use "it".
2.I can't restore "it". I don't have the time or talent (like Heather of New House New Home).
3.I am emotionally attached to it. "It" holds childhood memories of Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. (This makes parting with "it" hard...)
4. But, "it" could not go with me to the new storage space.
What to do? What to do?
I gave "it" away. My favorite design shop, Hillary's Interiors, does an amazing job of transforming lifeless furniture into masterpieces. The owner, Dean, has always been super generous in giving me a break on everything I purchase. Within an hour of my offer to bequeath "it", the dining room set was on the Hillary's truck and back at their store.
I could not bare meeting wheeler-dealers at my storage unit and dickering price. (The Queen of Craigslist knows all about working a deal!)
Have you ever made a decision that is illogical but felt like it was the right decision for you?
Thanks for listening!
