Craigslist Monday!

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. :)

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 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 could cover that round glass piece with a rattan placemat to add a little texture!

 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!
 Seriously friends. Get your Craigslist on! And let me know if you find anything else! I would love to see what you come up with! Not from Lynchburg? Show me some goodies from your local craigslist!

  1. I love this idea... have you gotten any takers? I look on craigslist for everything before actually spending money at the store :)...
