I inherited a bunch of used furniture from my uncle’s estate after she passed away two years ago.
Since she lived in a fairly affluent area, her cabin was just shy of decadent.
I was actually shocked by some of the pieces that I was being offered when I arrived to look at it all. My entire bedroom now consists of items I got from my uncle’s estate when she passed—a couch, recliner, mahogany coffee table, 55” 4k TV and stand, and love seat made out of suede. I was even offered a pool table and nearly cried when I determined that I couldn’t fit it in my home no matter how taxing I tried. I went from room to room and measured in vain, only to realize that it was actually too immense to fit in my house. This is after years of wanting to play pool at cabin because I don’t like having to visit a pool hall just to play one of my number one games again. After my uncle’s estate finished giving me a brand new bed and desk for my bedroom, they offered me a barely-used window cooling system as well. I was shocked because I would have been convinced that it was recently unboxed if they hadn’t told me otherwise. It’s an extremely strong window cooling system and I was able to put it in my basement to get rid of the inefficient portable cooling system that I was using down there previously. While I actually don’t need a cooling system in the basement during the Fall, winter, and Springtime, it actually comes in handy during our hot and humid summers. Basements are notorious for high humidity, which is why so various people use dehumidifiers in these spaces if they’re not already using air conditioner like I am.
