Confession is good for the soul, right? My name is Sherri Reyes, and I’m a Craigslist Junkie!! I have this compulsive NEED to rescue, restore and re-home neglected and unwanted furniture! There, I said it… So here goes the Confessions of a Furniture Addict.
Over the past few years, I have become more and more obsessed with “collecting” furniture. Some would argue its more like hoarding, but in my defense, a major component of hoarding is the inability or unwillingness to discard of said objects. I have no problem re-homing my beloved treasures (and they are treasures, each and every one of them!!)
I’m always on the hunt for my next fix… sneaking in a Craigslist peek while I’m waiting for my daughter to get out of softball practice or standing in line at the grocery store. It’s even the first thing I check when I wake up in the morning.
And even though I have furniture piled floor to ceiling in my garage, I just can’t stop! It’s like these poor, uncared for pieces call out to me… They beg me to come and save them and give them a better life. Today I even used my lunch break to go pick up a few more items to add to my collection: a jewelry armoire, cute little antique table and a gem of a dresser!! All which I cannot wait to transform! OK, so I didn’t have time to actually eat, but still, I call that a productive lunch!
So when you see me, rearranging all the pieces of furniture stuffed in my truck, trying desperately to make room to fit my kids… don’t judge me.
Am I alone in this? - Are you struggling with some form of addiction? Crafting? Housework? Home Decor? Furniture?
