I know how much my blogger friends love a good deal so I thought I would share a few of my latest Craigslist finds!
Grace and I drove to Milwaukee for this piece but it was soooo worth it! It seats three and is very sturdy! Perfect for the Music Room, I think!
This French hanging lantern is over five feet tall! Once I spray paint it bronze it will hang in our Family Room! The room has 18 foot ceilings so this is perfect!
I found this in the Summer. It beckons on our new front patio. I absolutely love the dog heads on the arm rests! It was totally free! All it required was a coat of paint and some new boards on the seat! It is extremely heavy! It took three grown men to move it!
Pair of Coalbrookdale Fern Chairs for back patio...
Three foot tall Pan statue for the back patio...
Concrete dog garden statues for the pavillion...named after our rescue Pit Bulls, Max and Lola. This is a photo from the internet because it's just too cold to go out and take photos! They are exactly the same.
Pair of fruit basket finial garden statues for the entrance to the potager...
This is the new Guest Room bed! I loved the old one but it was just too large. This is a full/double. The man I sold my bed and mattresses to was from Pakistan. He tied everything to the top of his small car! The entire Queensize headboard, footboard, mattress and box spring! You should have seen him! He said he learned to tie things on his camel when he was a boy! It was a sight to see!
I will paint this headboard and footboard...probably...most likely a shade of grey!
Carved French gilt demilune table with marble top. Currently on stair landing. Please note the particle board on the landing. I tore the carpet up on Thanksgiving Day! The mermaid crown was made entirely of recycled boxes and seashells!
The grand total for all these items was less than $800! I actually came out ahead! When I see something I love on Craigslist I put two or three items up for sale in order to pay for them! I usually buy up, meaning that I am constantly replacing so-so items with things I really want. The items I sold made more than what I spent! I will keep that aside for future purchases!
