Replacing old furniture

We felt that our old end table and lamp sets were dated and needed to be replaced.  After all, they had been purchased sometime during the 1980s when we lived in our condominium.  We had brought them to our new house in 1991.

So, out with the OLD:

Old end tables 008-A

Old end tables 010-A

Old end tables 011-A

And in with the NEW:

New end tables, lamps 002-A

New end tables, lamps 008-A

New end tables, lamps 007-A

Aren’t the new end tables and lamps much better?  The tops are made of faux marble, and we can put damp glassware on them without worrying about leaving water rings.  The tops can be cleaned with a paper towel or Swiffer without having to polish or wax them.

And they have nice drawers and bottom shelves, too.

The lamps are made of resin, so they won’t tarnish.  The base is quite heavy and won’t tip over in the breeze.

We purchased the tables and lamps from Ashley.com and they were reasonably priced.

    Buying new furnishing is always a fun experience. We will be buying a new dining set shortly as we sold the set we bought when we moved into our NH apt to friends who were moving to a larger apt.

    Very attractive in appearance, in usage and care required. I’ve always been partial to natural woods and at this late date in my life I’ll likely continue with what I have.
