im in the same boat. while id like to buy a very nice couch or whatever in the future, that future is somewhat far off. currently im living in an apartment and am pretty much moving every year.
ive come to the conclusion that there really isnt any point in buying furniture anymore, or at least until im in a much more stable situation. the only thing i will buy is a (king?) mattress. so ive been really thinking about just getting a bunch of free shit off craigslist and giving them new life by restaining, painting, etc. them. i think that its just easier to coordinate everything that way. and that it would be cheaper than if i actually bought cheap stuff on craigslist.
im currently in the dc/nova area, and theres always a lot of good stuff it seems. i have access to a large van and im also living close to my parents so ill have a workspace to do the projects.
ive been trying to think about what it is i should get as i am about to move again next mo. from my fully furnished apt and some ideas as to what i should do with the items i acquire. im thinking i should start a thread about the projects ill do throughout the course of the next 30 days or so. do you guys have any recs as to where i should look to for inspiration (blogs, vids, articles, pictures, etc)? ive looked through the nester.com which is pretty interesting. ive also looked through some stuff on pinterest, but find a lot of that stuff is too precious for my tastes.
