First up: washer and dryer. We obviously need these and will move them with us. I've decided I want both machines to be front-loading, so we can put a flat surface on it. I love the idea of having a folding and ironing space all in one.
This lady's blog and house are fab.
|Not the exact same but a similar style.|
Deep freeze: I call a free-standing freezer a deep freeze. Technically, they're "chest freezers." We would like to get one and keep it in the garage. I might even take a note from my parents: they now buy fresh produce (like corn, beans, etc) in season and freeze it in portion-controlled bags. It saves a lot of money, and their stand-alone freezer helps out with this. We also buy meat in bulk (any meat in North Carolina is expensive, y'all), and this would give us more space. Our current freezer is part of our side-by-side unit and really isn't big enough.
Coffee and end tables: How many end tables can one couple own? We found a really nice set at Rooms To Go and are planning to buy them once Joey moves out. These will go in our family room.
Bookshelves: I'm a big fan of the ladder-style bookshelf. We want one or two in a similar stain to the coffee table set above for cookbooks, DVDs / Blu Rays, and general books.
Lounge chair and ottoman: I would like an armchair and matching ottoman for a reading area. Depending on our next house, I was thinking of putting them in the living room or a spare bedroom.
After seeing how much furniture we'll need, I'm going to start checking pants pockets and lifting cushions for spare change. BRB.
