Guest Post: Maureen Stevens remembers her worst furniture purchase

 Maureen blog, Inspired Mrs. Stevens, inspires us daily and we’re so excited  about her  joining us for another guest post.   In her  last guest post she shared her memories of  investing in beautiful  white tuffed chairs.

Today,  Maureen shares about her absolute worst furniture buy.

Right after college, my college friend and I rented a two-bedroom apartment and bought all of our stuff in a consignment store. We thought this particle board night stand had a nice flair to it and at $20? We scored!

Not the actual piece but a replica of what I remember!

But my taste has changed over the years as well as my take on what is functional and high quality yet beautiful. One should never make compromises on any of these three furniture “musts.” And I believe there is furniture that meets all three that’s  also easily accessible and affordable.


Ahh, particle board. Who hasn’t been there?!

Both Maureen and Tolly Moseley  (Austin Eavesdropper) are guest blogging this month about their furniture adventures and are designing  a space at F123 which is being showcased at our Back to School Bash on Tuesday August 30thYou can stop by the store now and see the progress of the room designs.

We want to hear about your WORST furniture purchase! Was it an ugly sofa you picked up for free on the side of the road? Was it an old hand-me-down from your Great Aunt’s basement? How long did it follow you around until you were able to upgrade?

To enter to win, you can swing by the Furnish 123 store (6601 Burnet Road) and share a story or photo of your first (or worst) furniture purchase on our“Conquest Wall” or “Wall of Shame.” Haven’t bought any furniture yet?
