Sleeping with a tall leggy Swede

May 8, 2012

I’ve completed the refurnishing of my bedroom with Ikea furniture.

My father wanted me to try to sell the old furniture. For some odd reason, he’s attached to it. Not attached to it enough to still use it himself. He’s had three sets of bedroom furniture since he stopped using that furniture in 1987. You see, he bought the furniture set when he first got married 37 years ago. He paid $4000 for it.

Yeah, like he’s gonna get any of that money back. It lasted 37 years. That’s long enough.

So my brother peeked around craigslist for similar stuff to see what it’s going for. $200 or best offer.

Charitable donation it is.

    Funny thing is, it’s probably pretty good quality furniture; after all, it held up for 37 years and is still going strong.

    Aww, I think it’s sweet that your dad’s attached to the furniture.

    If only you’d held on to it for another few years, then you could have sold it as antique and made a mint!

    Wow, 4k 40years ago? That must have been a heck of a nice set!

    My mom is still using my old bedroom set, bought in 1980, in a spare room.
