new cushions or new furniture
The interior of our shore home was wrecked in Hurricane Sandy. However, our 20-year old living room furniture was spared. ItÃ¢ÂÂs a wood frame set with no upholstery, just cushions. The cushions have needed to be replaced for a few years, but the wood part is perfect (needs to be MurphyÃ¢ÂÂs oil soaped). My dilemma is this: WeÃ¢ÂÂve gotten estimates for new covers (not the foam part because thatÃ¢ÂÂs OK) ranging from $1900 to $3500. The last estimate was $2580 and we really liked the fabric that went with that estimate.
We could get a new Broyhill set for $2300. We like the old set . . . it looks beachy and fits well in our house, but do we really want to spend that much money refurbishing a 20-year old set? Plus, it really makes me sick to just throw the old set away. Somebody talk me into something!
