I am starting a "thing". Every other Monday I am going to have a Craigslist day where I am going to shop FOR you! How fun! I am going to comb craigslist and find the more thrifty deals with the best potential for improvement and give my suggestions for how I would flip them! If you would like to purchase any of these items and have me do the work for you, comment and I will email you with an estimate. Bottom line, you buy the supplies and the piece, and I will charge you a very minimal fee to refurbish it for you! I'm talkin' like... $10 people! (Unless it involves MAJOR restoration) And I will do the work for you! So here is what I have come up with for you this evening friends. Some of the most amazing deals I have seen yet! And don't forget that you can always try to negotiate the price!
First, there is this great sized desk for only $50!
This oak dresser for only $40! Oh my gosh if I hadn't just done that table for our living room! A little black paint and some new hardware and this would look super cauuute! And classy. :)
This is one posting for both the coffee table and the end table for $45! You could either paint them or stain them a nice rich, deep wood tone. I would purchase this just for the end table! And think...you could cover that round glass piece with a rattan placemat to add a little texture!
The price tag on this one is a bit high...but I love it! I don't like to spend $100 on Craigslist though. It wouldn't really need any work unless you wanted to add some custom hardware or upholster the chair!
This seller only wants $15 for this! WHAT?! Someone please buy it and let me paint it white and make a new cushion for it. Puhleeease!!! This would be perfect for a nursery! But alas...hubbs and I will not have a nursery anytime soon. So I need you to buy it!
