5 Things You Should Buy From Craigslist

Is it just me, or does Craigslist always have amazing bargains...aside from the occasional sketch factor, I have found some amazing things through this site.  So I thought it would be fun to compile a list of 5 things you should definitely buy on Craigslist if you are a DIY kinda girl.  These are asking prices only...feel free to bargain, girlfriends!

Pedestal Tables ~ $20

How pretty would this be painted in a glossy white or even a kelly green would be a fun statement piece!  Endless possibilities...I really like the character and the shape of the top.

Fabric Covered Ottomans ~ $25

Easily recovered in your choice of fabric.  A great way to add a custom piece to your living room.  You could even have a skirted cover made for this.

Antique Tufted Chairs ~ $200 for Both

I would recover these babies in a soft lenin fabric.  The shape is amazing.  Plus, you would save yourself hundreds by getting them reupholstered.  These are dreamy...

Dressers ~ $45

This is a classic structure that can be painted to match any room.  Change the hardware too, and you have a completely new piece. 

Bedside Tables ~ $35 for BOTH!

I bought these for our Master Bedroom and they were stained a lighter brown color.  So, I sanded them and painted them this blue to match our old bedroom.  These are by far one of my most favorite Craigslist finds!  Such great quality and so inexpensive!  These will be staying for a long time...they are so easy to repaint to match any decor.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Do you buy furniture from Craigslist?  Any great finds?

Have a wonderful weekend friends!
