Jubilee Furniture weekly update post for Thursday, July 17, 2014


I was struck this week by the fact that summer is about half over and it made me shudder.  I’m Illinois born and raised – so no stranger to extremely weather – but I resolve to be mindful of every warm and sunny day without the shadow of the upcoming cold, snow and gray skies ruining my enjoyment!

Another trip to The Merchandise Mart for some amazing outdoor furniture certainly helps me with that commitment!  It’s easy to imagine family and friends sitting outside talking and laughing in these super comfortable – and very attractive – pieces!  And the best part?  The quality is so excellent they’ll last for years and years!

Let’s take a look at some of the items donated this week (but know there are lots more wonderful pieces than just these photos):

there are four of these chairs – and I think they’re fabulous! – the seats need to be reupholstered and some minor touch up to the wood – but schazam!  They’re amazing!  Best part?  All four for $40 (they’re on the covered patio)

JFC 07-17-14 029JFC 07-17-14 030

I am completely in love with this retro cabinet – - I’m not sure what it was originally used for but you could add a rod and make it a wardrobe or remove the shelf at the top, add one toward the bottom and put your flat-screen TV in it or you could add more shelves and turn it into an amazing organizer (and it’s attractive enough that it could sit by your front door).  The caning is broken in one spot on one of the panels (alas) – still it’s fantastic!  Priced $165

JFC 07-17-14 031JFC 07-17-14 032

JFC 07-17-14 037JFC 07-17-14 038

for all you bench lovers out there  (Tara!) this is the mother of all benches!  French Provencal style, upholstery in fairly good condition (though I did see at least one button off) priced only $55!  Measures 6’7” (that’s l-o-n-g!).  You can see it fits perfectly at the end of a king-size bed (fyi)

Dear reader – I hope you enjoy this lovely, warm, sunshiny day with nary a thought about the possibly horrid winter we’re facing in just a few short months!! Winking smile
