Step 1: Clearance Sales
I was looking for a cheep replacement in sales an auctions but came up with nothing suitable.
I then went to a clearance sale at a local furniture store and found a nice looking oak unit with some damage to all the doors the price tag on it was an astonishing £1600 but since there was considerable damage to it I simply asked for a price they would be happy to let let it go for I got a response of £100 if you take it away today? I just about had the guys hand off there was more than £100 worth of oak there.!
Step 2: Moving The Beast
When I got it home there was only me and my dad to get it out it was a struggle to say the least there are only two small step to get it in the front door but getting it in was an issue we got one end in and put the two legs on a towel so we could slide it in with both of us at one end. The good old laminate flooring made it Easier than lifting it to the living room it just slid into place.
