Furniture in Storage???
I have a beautiful antique living room suite - sofa & two chairs. Even I will admit that it's not very comfortable. We have decided to make our living room into a family room & convert our current den into an office/library. I will be purchasing new slipcovered furniture (easier with the cats) for the family room. That leaves me no place to put my lovely furniture.
I've thought about selling it on ebay or contacting antiques stores about it. I'm having a harder time letting go of this than anything else so far. I think part of the reason is sentimental: my mother, now deceased, bought this furniture for DH & me before we were married. Another is that I just like the furniture & like having a "formal" room that actually stays uncluttered. DH & I haven't decided yet if we will build a house. DH has promised me that if we do, we can have a formal living room, even if it's tiny. If we do build, I would really love to still have this furniture. I have room in the attic, but it won't go through the stair opening.
Now I'm toying with the idea of storage. DH is ready to change some things around, so he wants this furniture out. He says he doesn't care if I sell it, give it away, or put it in storage. Please, tell me your thoughts!
