Furnishing for Free

Filed under: General — Neil Aitken @ 12:41 pm

In an unexpectedly good dose of kharma, yesterday I acquired this very nice leather sofa and loveseat combination for the amazing price of $FREE.  True, the previous owners’ cat had painstakingly “vintaged” a couple of the corners, but these are largely unnoticeable given their location and the style of the brass taps (I think that’s the right word) which hold it all together.  The worse corner is on the loveseat, but this is currently facing away from a person’s point of view when they enter the room.

Here’s the loveseat – one the left side you can see where the cat has done its vintaging.

Here’s the three seater sofa, note the minor scratchwork on the right side of the picture.


I think I can honestly say that I got a deal :)    I’ll put up with the scratch marks, they’re minor compared to the cost of trying to find good furniture when you’re not making any money.
