As I've mentioned before, I am refurbishing my apartment...so far I have a really nice new area rug, a solid computer desk, and a pretty expensive new lamp. Next up: a bookcase and an entertainment center.
I found a nice, solid wood bookcase for 100 dollars, so I figure I can't pass that deal up....I'll be picking that up fairly soon.
As far as an entertainment center goes, there is a huge difference in price between one that's all wood versus one that's particle board. Now, I do want nice things, but I want to balance it out with price and practicality as well.
In your experience, is there a huge difference in the durability and quality between the two?? Is it worth paying 3 or 4 times more for the solid wood one??
