There's one in almost every family: a piece of furniture with history.
Maybe it's handed down from generation to generation or used by child after child. Maybe it was a special find or part of a treasured collection. Maybe it's the last holdout from your college days or first home, a reminder that you just can't let go.
Whatever its background, this piece has earned a special place in your house. Your home wouldn't be the same without it there are too many memories.
We want to hear your furniture stories, so we can share them with our readers in an upcoming Home & Garden.
Please tell us about this special piece in 250 words or less and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include "Furniture stories" in the subject line and, if possible, attach a photo. Or you can mail your story to: Furniture Stories, Home & Garden, Sacramento Bee, P.O. Box 15779, Sacramento, CA 95852.
There's still time to share. We've extended the deadline for submissions to 5 p.m. Monday. (Due to a glitch in our email system, we did not receive submissions sent before March 10. If you emailed your story before that date, please send it again. We apologize for the problem.)
