Furnishing Our Home - Window Shopping

We spent the afternoon window shopping for furniture.  The amount of furniture, appliances, and accessories we're going to need is a bit overwhelming.  We went in with the mindset that our new furniture would jump out at us.  Wow, furniture is NOT cheap.  We hit up 4 places today.  That was about all our legs could handle.  Between walking up and down every aisle on the very long concrete show rooms floors to the sitting down and getting up a BILLION times.  Our poor knees!  Some of these sofas sucked you in.  It was like it vacuum suctioned in your hineey.  We checked out Ashley, Morris, Morris Outlet, and Valley City Furniture.  Only a few things really got me excited.  Everything else just seemed like furniture.  I didn't like ANY of the dining tables.  Not a single one.  That is going to be the tough item to select I think.

We may try more stores tomorrow.  There are still many, many more places to look.  Sigh.

The rooms/items we need to furnish:

Morning Room - Dining Table & Chairs, Stools; Possibly: Buffet, Sitting Chairs
Family Room - Sofa & Loveseat, Chair, Coffee & End Tables, Media Cabinet or Table; Possibly: Ottoman
Living Room - Loveseat, Chair, End Tables; Possibly: Coffee Table, Ottoman
