More Craigslist Finds! Entire Living Room!

Well, I must say I am excited for several reasons about this post!  Not only did I get great deals on this furniture, but I have enough to finish the entire living room!
The room is not set up yet but I wanted to share my finds.  Use your imagination to see these items nestled in their new home!
Floral loveseat...modern and vintage all at the same time!

Mirror to go behind loveseat!  Look at the vivid colors!  Your guests should know what types of things interest you.  Great conversation starter!

Another loveseat to sit opposite the floral one...see how the orange velour brings out the brown tones in the floral sofa?

Anyone who knows me knows how much I adore armoires in a room!  This room is no exception!

What living room would be complete without a television set?  This set says "vintage" to me!

Spare seating is a MUST!  Wheels are a convenient addition.  One can move the chair effortlessly! (Even with someone in  the chair! Grandma can participate in more family gatherings, just wheel her about!) 

Artwork always lends a personal touch!  Don't you agree?

Of course, nothing warms up a room faster and brings it all together like a good area rug!

I hope you are as excited as I am!

Tee Hee!  April Fool!
Honestly?  A bear skin rug?  In my house?!
I had to do it early so you wouldn't suspect anything!
I had so much fun writing this!  I giggled the entire time!


  1. Most Divine One, I do believe you're being a little stinker. After seeing your gorgeous interiors I don't think these items are your style! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. That orange...dare I say...settee? Is so unique and well....ORANGE. I'm sure you'll be the envy of all your friends....*sticks finger in throat*LOL!
    When CL is bad, it's really badddd! And the funny thing is people want LOTS of money for that stuff.....Crack is wack. Vanna

  3. Good one Andie! I nearly thought my "guru of good taste" had lost the plot! Having to live with that stuff would have me in a permanent state of depression! x Sharon

  4. Your kidding right??????? Hugs and smiles Gloria

  5. April Fools is still a few days away :-).

  6. Teeeeheee! I was thinking, "hmmmm.....I don't know her well yet, but I have the feeling she is yanking our chains!" AND YOU ARE! THANK GOODNESS...and I love your choice of music!!! BE WELL DEAREST!!! Anita

  7. Oh this is hilarious! I know you are the Craigslist queen but this is going just a bit too far! Great post though. You had me going until about the 3rd picture. Bloggers are famous for "reinventing" so I thought just maybe...have a great day! ~Ann

  8. This was a good one! I have a colorful imagination, but for the love of chocolate I couldn't make it happen in my head. smile....

    Here you go my friend another blog I think you will like:
    A blog friend told me about her.

    Hugs xo

  9. Not funny when we've bought furniture and realize, years later, it's a disaster.

  10. This was funny and a good laugh..thanks I needed that to start my day. Wish you could have seen my mind scrambling to see how I could possibly come up wtih something nice to say, first the velour sofa, then the baseball mirror that would only look right in a sports bar, then the huge mega tv set...oh dear, it was like a nightmare that was getting worse the more I scrolled down. I was then realizing there was no way I could say something complimentary without bald face lying so figured I will come back tomorrow to hoepfully be inspired! had us all fooled!! I mean I like vintage but this throws a whole new spin on the word. Good one!!

  11. When I started reading and seeing those pictures I knew it had to be a joke since none of that lovely vintage stuff is your style.

  12. Geez, Andie, I thought it was all retro til I saw the armoire...I was believing it! You are a genius! LOL I can't believe this post--it made my day!!!

  13. Thank God it was a joke because I was trying to come up with words to ask if you had flipped? So not your style or quality of taste…Whew! Now I don’t have to lie and say it’ll pretty someday….lol.

  14. Ms. Divine, You had me at the beginning. When I saw the floral love seat, I thought, maybe? then the mirror, I thought no way! Then The orange sofa. I got it!!!! This is a joke. You are so cleaver. I love it. Keeps us on our toes. Thanks for stopping by. Love and big Sissy Dog kisses, Richard

  15. OMG Andie I don't know what is more funny this post or all the comments!!!!!!! I was choking and thinking just like the others...what the hell am I supposed to say here? You are sooo funny!
    When I saw that floral couch ..oh no the 80's and that mirror with the logo? I was thinking okay she is gonna do some magic change here...I hope!!
    Great post!!!
    I have to tell others about this post!

    Pamela xo

  16. i almost fell on that!!!!!!!!!!!!! great post! had a lot of fun reading. i have to say that i do like that orange sofa though!
    have fun!

  17. You know what's so funny, that's the kind of junk you find on our CL, never the wonderful pieces you find, you had me going the first few pictures, thought this can't be! You would have to do major work to change all that stuff. So glad it was a joke!

  18. I just could not believe my eyes! I thought seriously??? is she going to put that in her living room? Arnold????
    Great post!
    XXX Ido

  19. At first I thought you were serious and figured you had plants to recover sofa, makeover mirror, by the time I got to the orange hideousness, I knew you couldn't be! I SO wish I would have thought to do this! On my CL it seems these folks charge top $ for this stuff, too. Hugs! Kim

  20. Hilarious! I was like - SHE LOST HER MIND! Noooooooo!

    Too funny!

  21. LMAO... at first I thought I had come to the wrong Blog!?!?! *winks* And then I had to pause and wonder... surely she is not serious??? This was like a bad 70's Flashback for me...I began having PTSD about Burnt Orange Shag Carpeting... Avocado and Harvest Gold appliances... horrid swirly Mirrored Tiling everywhere... Velvet paintings of Elvis and Dogs playing cards... Formica... linoleum... Oh God I feel sick *winks* ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...
    The Psychedelic 60's I adored... the 70's was just a lot of bad decorating and fashion... very bad... bad... bad... bad... *LOL*

    I'm relieved now to know you're still the Andie we've come to know and be inspired by... and you haven't gone over to the dark side of 70's decorating *smiles*... Dawn... The Bohemian

  22. PS: This HAD to be the "irony" of imagining in "primitive dwelling spaces" you eluded to on my Post and had Vanna and I wondering what you had up your sleeve??? *LOL* Honestly Andie, when I saw that 1st photo I was REALLY hoping it was a joke because I was speechless on how I'd respond if you weren't... I would have had to go by the old addage of..."If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all..." *Smiles*

  23. Fun way to start my morning...know your house too well!!

  24. As I was reading this, I kept thinking, "She's got to be kidding, she can't be serious, I really thought she had much better taste than this!" are so bad!!!
    Have a great day!
    Hugs, Cindy

  25. This is like an awful film that turned out to be great in the end! Thanks for the giggles!

  26. Very good April Fool! I was getting more appalled by the second and wondering if my new friend Andie had gone off the deep end. :)
    The love seat and Arnold take the prize however.

  27. Well bummer! I was so excited to see your new "groovy in a far out kind of way" pad! Okay, it was starting to look like a frat house, curbside pickup kind of place. But, who am I to judge? Rest assured, we will all be here for you when the nightmares of living in that room start to hit you. Happy April fool's day to you and in the words of, obviously one of your favorite men since you have a photo of him in your new space, "I'll be back!" :)

  28. HaHaHA!!! I don't even know you very well yet and I was thinking..."Is she off her meds or something!" LOL!
    Have a beautiful weekend~
    ;-D Kathleen

  29. You are so hilarious! I was sitting here thinking to each their own, but really she loves this? You are great...what a fun post!

  30. You had me a 'bear rug'. HA HA HA

  31. So cracking up right now!!! You had me going there with the first few, then I started to get a bit worried...then I realized you were pulling our proverbial legs...clever you!!
    Thanks for the mid-day laugh!
    xo J~

  32. Whew. You scared me!
    April Fool's for sure!
    Will fill in my qualifications for your giveaway when I get home this evening!
