Searching Craigslist

I have always enjoyed checking out Craigslist. I search it every couple of days but have never found a piece that I am in LOVE with. Well, I have, but once I get the nerve up to call is usually sold.

I have always searched ..."furniture" and then the key words... "antique" and "vintage".

I found a few great pieces that way....but NOTHING compared to all of the AMAZING pieces that everyone else seems to find!

Last night I hit the MOTHER LOAD and had to share!!!!!

Try searching, "furniture" and then "french"!!!!!!

I am now in love with Tampa again, and all of the great pieces that it has to offer. :)

This dresser is cute! I was actually thinking about putting it in our living room and mounting our tv on the wall over it. (loads of storage for the ever-growing dvd collection of Disney movies)

This bed is BEAUTIFUL!

This piece is listed at a store, and is selling for $216!!!!!!! Solid wood, and I lOVE it! I am trying to decide if I have the "guts" to put such a large bold piece in my dining room! It might give me the push that I need to paint our red Farm table!

Love that mirror!

Cute bed!!!!! I wish Kacey's room was big enough to have this, although I am not ready for her to have such a fancy "big girl" room!

This chair stated, " FRENCH ARM CHAIR WALDORF ASTORIA CASH OR TRADE FOR CIGARS - $40" It looks kind of rough in some places, but it holds a spot in my heart! Anyone know how on earth I could recover/redo this piece?! I would love to give it a shot!

I wouldn't even change this one!!!!

This would be a serious job to paint white, but still beautiful!

love this piece!!!!!!!!!!

Now go search your craigslist and share what you find!
