I'm STILL buying furniture!!

When I sold my condo back in Toronto I also sold almost all of the furniture pieces (dining table and chairs, sleeper, and wardrobe) to the buyer, so I came to Ottawa with suitcases, 2 chairs, and a lot of decor items!

Which meant that there was a whackload of furniture that I needed to replace.  Luckily I have a gigantic island, and since it's just me I'm using 2 barstools and the island countertop as my table.

That still leaves:
- Headboard - Bought at Home Sense (can be a double or queen size) for $249+tax
- Bed Frame - Still need to buy.....thinking Ikea for $150
- Dresser - Bought last night at Leons for $399+ tax.
- Sofabed - Bought last night at Leons for $799+ tax.
- Coffee Table - Bought at Ikea for $129+tax.
- Entertainment Stand - Bought at Ikea for $148 + tax (during their entertainment centre sale!)
- Photo Ledge - Still need to buy.....thinking Ikea.....
- Mattress - Bought at the Brick for $281 and change.

I forgot how much money it takes to furnish a condo, but I'm almost there!!!
