CraigsList LOVE!

I know you would rather see what I am doing with the things I am accumulating instead of just showing you what I am purchasing!! I am accumulating alot of PROJECTS!

For awhile now, I have been working on my family room makeover. This takes time you see when you have no money! Unemployment drives people to be quite thrifty! Anyway, so far I have painted the 2 story living room, wallpapered one small accent wall, made over the armoire, recovered 2 lamp shades for CL lamps I bought and painted the other lamps I already had.

I still need to reupholster 2 chairs and a sofa, paint two end tables and purchase a dresser and a display cabinet!!

Well, CHECK...I found a dresser that will be perfect and meets my price range. Wait for it....wait for it...

$15!!!!!!!




So what do you think?? I know it needs some work but it is very sturdy. I will take some better pictures when I get it home. Need the hubby for that one! I am thinking stain on the top and a distressed finish on the bottom.

It will provide the storage I want for all my photo boxes and pictures that are taking up room in the "EVERYTHING" closet. I want to use the closet for a 2nd pantry. I am so excited and once everything is done on the rehab house, I can get back to work around here!!

I am linking up to 504 Main for her Tickled Pink party!

Can't wait to see the finished project! I'm soooo addicted to Craigslist. I'm accumulating projects also. This week has been good. A total of $90 for a dining room table and chairs and 2 chairs that I am going to reupholster. Pretty good deals!

Hi Bonnie,

You got lucky with that dresser. I love craigslist. I've found some great things on there but it has been more miss that hit lately. Have a great weekend.
