That's our new dining room table! For the house we haven't closed on yet! (Minor detail.)
Isn't she purdy? I was at the Crate & Barrel outlet getting a birthday present for a friend when BAM! there it was. It's the Basque table, 104" long (for our cavernous future dining room), and still for sale at their regular retail stores for $999. We paid $299.
That's 70% off! I basically paid an IKEA price for a table that seats 10!
And that is why we jumped on it. There's one tiny imperfection on one corner, and that was all it took to get banished to the outlet. It needed a good home, the poor thing. It'll just have to join us in the condo for a couple of weeks. See? Part of the family already. Now if I can just find an equally good deal on some chairs, we'll really be in business. I found some contenders on Overstock, but we'll see...
Have you scored any awesome deals lately? Or perhaps you're prematurely buying furniture when your closing date isn't until July?
