I kid you not, this was said to me on the street in Boston by a panhandler a week after 911. Funny how this was the first thing I thought of as my next door neighbor approached B about giving us his furniture.
Here's some before and after.
The ginormous entertainment cabinet as well as the slipper chair were kindly gifted to our cause over at my empty apartment. I'll be styling the entertainment system this week with pics, vases, and lamps. The chair and ottoman is obviously getting slipcovered ASAP.
